It's not practical. You'd need to change hubs, and the 5x114 hubs have different front struts, and different axles. And the different axles have a different rear differential. And the different rear differential goes with a front differential, which is in your transmission. It would be very complicated and expensive to change it...
This is great news, that's more likely when I'll be actually looking to BUY rims anyways.

Thanks for the info on the switch, I'll just cross that off my list of things to do. Hah.

I have heard that sometime a group of people can get together and order a strange setup for a rim from a manufacturer if there are enough people willing to pay for them... Is this only for certain manufacturers or do most of them do this? I'm curious because I really like the Enki PF01's [enki.com url] in black, but they don't make a 18x9 5x100.

I like the Rota G-Force's you have on your site there Dan, but do you have any pictures of them in the blacks? The Rota D-Force's look pretty similar to the Enki's as well but they aren't available in a 9, only a 9.5 and I'm not really sure I want to roll the fender's... I'm a bit worried about the paint having problems down the line or the front's rubbing when cornering hard after it's got a more agressive stance (lowered a bit).
