That's going to be tricky, if not totally impractical. Going from four to five, or five to four nearly always ends up with one of the holes interfering. On steel hubs it is easy to plug the original holes and re-drill to your heart's content, but Centerlines are aluminium, and the original style ones were two spun discs with a spacer plate sandwiched between. I would say look for another pair for the rear, but others might argue that by making the one interfering hole an '8' the other three will be round enough to hold the wheel in place. Might look crap though. Or use adapters.
