Question Aston Martin Wheels

I have a 2011 Aston Martin DB9. I also have acquired an almost new set of Rapide 20 wheels with almost new tires. The problem is the wheel bolt pattern of the Rapide wheels is slightly larger than the DB9 wheel studs. I have researched the question and the conclusion is I must change out the wheel hub requiring a change out of the brake rotor and possibly the brake caliper.

Do do any of you know of an other way to do this?

If you want to use those wheels and if the wheel bolt circle diameter is not the same as what the car will accept then a hub change -- which has the right bolt circle diameter and the right number of bolts (and you have the right bolts) -- with a rotor change and even possibly a caliper change if the right rotors are larger in diameter or thicker than what the car came with will be necessary.

Can't you work with a wheel adaprer?
iff the offset allows you to place adapter off 20mm it's possible.

I hope I don't have to spend the money for wheel discs and new calipers. That's probably a $4000 to $5000 fix. Better off buying a Rapide and selling the DB9. I've talked to a company that makes adapters but they act like they don't want any business. I can't get a price out of them. Thanks for the replies but it looks like I don't have a viable solution. Any body need a set of Rapide wheels with almost new tires?
