Default 5x100 to 5x114 conversion help

hey guys, i've searched all over and cant find out how to switch my wheel space size from 5x100 to 5x114 so i can get the sti wheels on my wrx.
im trying to keep the car clean and as much stock as i can. i rerally like the silver bbs's and i want to probably buy a used pair. but the only problem is the obvious one about the sizes being differnt for the lugs.
anyone know what exactly i need for this to work?
is it worth it?

Yeah, just wait for some '04 STI Wheels, or get something else. I don't think you realize the amount of parts that have to be swapped to make the conversion.

yeah, hub conversion, not fun even for an STi owner. i'd love 4x4.5" since it would let me run a way better selection of wheels. i swear there are tons of days where i regret ever buying my STi. (should have learned to be happy with the WRX)

ya, well good luck with your search, if you FIND 5 x 100 STi Rims, get them FAST.

EVERYONE and their MOTHER wants them, they fit on just about every subaru, have cash in hand, and dont even bother to get "dibs." Just send a payment, lol. trust me

There ar a lot of wheels out there that will fit, and you can get right now. You're going to have a hard time finding '04 STI wheels, so I wouldn't limit yourself to them.

To bad Rota doesn't make a clone of them. I bet they wouldn't be able to keep up, they'd sell so well.

if your gonna do this , do it right. these guys are the best at the conversion kits avail for the subies. just spend the money on this and youll benefit big time.

^^^ kit requires you to start with a STI 04 before changing. On a wrx its like doing a 6speed swap you need so many parts might as well just get the whole thing when u do that.
