wheel redrilling vs adapters

so ive picked up a set of wheels, 19x8 +15, 19x10 +0.

i know what youre all gonna say, but i will make these work, i just gotta save up more for the camber kits. but anyhow, i am looking for advice and not criticism.
the bolt pattern for the wheels are 5x100 and obviously i need to get them to 114.3.

unfortunately, these wheels will have a hard time getting on the car by itself, but now i am told that i should get wheel adapters, even bigger problem, these wheels dont have those holes in the back of the mounting surface that allows for the stock lugs to poke through into the back of the wheel, so i would probably have to get something along the lines of a 25mm adapter

the mounting surface looks like this..

rather than..

anyways, back to the big question

can i redrill the wheels from 5x100 to 5x114.3? should i be worried about safety issues?

OR should i (which i dont want to do) get an adapter and increase the negative camber i will eventually have to run?

i really want to do a redrill

Get the adapters and possibly shorter wheel studs so that you can minimize the thickness of the adapters. OR ..... AND I Know You Don't want to hear this ...... sale these and get the ones with the correct bolt pattern.

IMHO ..... redrilling them = unsafe.

Redrilling is perfectly safe. I had my VMRs redrilled from 5x120 to 5x114 and have had no issues. Make sure your running hub rings and only let a qualified shop do the redrilling and youll never no the difference....
