Default Wheel Adapter 5x100 to 5x114.3?

Hey guys about two months ago, I brought some new wheels...and the pattern was 5x114.3, however, the 03 wrx is 5x100. I'm thinking about putting Wheel Adapters on my wrx to convert it from 5x100 to 114.3. I'm wondering how reliable they are? I'm thinking about getting it from this guy off ebay.

tell me what u guys suggest.


or if you know anywhere else where i can get wheel adapters.


THanks!

I can't vouch for the quality of the stuff I see on ebay. I do know the Ichiba and Kics adaptors are top quality, and are used in racing and daily applications. You will spend alot more on them, but it may be worth it in the end.

A wheels adaptor should be around 25mm or 1" like the ones you linked us too. You will need to roll your fenders for sure with that much offset added. It would make any standard +48 subaru specific wheel run in the +20mm offset range.

But Grippy! Wheel Spacers and an offset lower than 48mm will cause the car to implode!
