You either have to do a hub swap or buy a set of aftermarket wheels that have the 5x4.25 pattern.

my mechanical skills I would say are decent. depends on what I would have to through haha. usually the only problem I have is not having the tools. could I be a quick run through on how it is done. if I were to guess I would say it shouldn't be to bad. but I could be wrong
