ahhh the 5 lug conversion??

there are many experts "DrRX" being the first I belive over on the USMB. He comes around here on occasion, but there is the easiest place to find him. "Hondasucks" and "subarutex" and "Subarustyles" have done the swap too

i think the hubs and stuffs from the xt 6 should be able to be transplanted to your car, the xt6 had a 5 lug hub, thats what im trying to get for my 86 rx. good luck with the wheels, and if you cant do the hub swap, look for a peugot, they are the only cars that share a common lug pattern with the old subies

Ya, i dont have hubs on my car, I have the motion wheels, I really like the stock premium wheels, and they will do great for now, but i would like to throw some new wheels on there a lil later, but they cannot accept hubs

As promised:

Here is the link to Corkys webpage with the 5 lug conversion

Click here

Once there click on the:

"Conversion from 4 X 140mm bolt wheels to 5 X 100mm wheels"

Link

Hope that helps
