keep in mind that if you do the 5x114.3 conversion, you'll need the entire rear end from the same year sti as well.
Keep in mind if you plan on using the rear STi Brembo setup you will have to swap to either JDM STi rear hubs or 04 STi rear hubs.

This really isn't to bad, there are plenty of guys running setups like this for a good while now without any wheel bearing issues. You can also look into the 6gun setup that allows you to use the 05+ wheel bearings.
