Default Wheel/hub options... help!

I'm getting a very strong urge to fit bigger/different wheels to my car, it's the one thing about 50% of people comment on!

Looking at the front hubs I think it is relatively easy to redrill for 5 stud, the rear hubs, however, don't have any material between the existing 4 stud positions and I don't like the idea of welding to forged parts in such a structural place!

The wheels I really want are some Audi RS4 replicas in 19", I can get them 8" wide with a 45mm offset, so with careful choice of tyres I think they wouldn't stick out of the bodywork. I would be going from 4x114.3mm pattern to 5x112mm.

Are there any other options short of making up new hubs that I have missed?

Here's a photoshop I did earlier....
