I'm pretty sure you can buy spacers that change the 5x100 bolt pattern to a 5x114.3, but that's not recommended because it would change your suspension geometry for the worse.

If you really want to do that, your best bet is to switch hubs.

If you have zero concern for your own safety or that of others, you could also drill or "egg out" the holes until the wheels fit

Those are your options.
