Default Hub adapter 5x100 to 5x114.3

Does anyone know of a wheel spacer that is also a bolt pattern adapter from 5x100 to 5x114.3 ?

There is a much larger selecton of big wheels in 5x114.3 .

I know of several 5x100 wheel spacers - if I could find blank one without the studs I could drill it for a 5x114.3 pattern.

Other suggestions ?

I a looking for 18x9.5 or wider wheels in 5x100 and not finding much - suggestions ?

thats a great idea, it would make things so much easier for finding wider rims.

There are some out there, but the spacing is usually around -25 mm to the offset. I have a customer with them and 18x9.5 Advans and 265 35 18s. His tires stick out from the fenders over an inch and a half, and the steering geometry is screwed. However, he likes it so I just let him go.

.....wow.....I hope you don't have a sudden and complete failure of some associated component at speed....

Uncle thinks this is a bad juju idea and the correct wheels are a MUCH better idea than the ghettocraptastic adapters.

Let us know how it works.......

Yah those scare me for anything other than a show car - but maybe I'm paranoid. I would look into swapping hubs if you have your heart set on the 05 bolt pattern.

They would be great if you could find a 5X114 with a 65 offset.

Here is the problem with the 15mm adaptor. To get adequete bite on a 12mm diameter stud, the nut needs to be 12mm onto the stud, which with a 1.25 thread pitch means 9.60 turns of the nut. If you have a 15mm adaptor like these, you are threading the nut down into the spacer to mount it on the stock hub. This means that one of two things is going to happen. You are either not going to be able to turn the nut 12mm onto the stud, or you are only going to have 3mm of metal between the factory hub, and the nut holding the spacer on. Neither is a good thing.

If your set on the 5x114.3 bolt pattern then you are much better off by doing a conversion, which is not an easy thing, or if you are dead set on an 18x9.5 rim, CCW, Kodiak, Kinesis and several others can custom build you rims of that size in the 5x100 pattern.

I am unfamiliar with the Outback setup, I assume it is similar to the Impreza. Big question will be whether the Outback and STi spindles are the same (size and spline count).

If you don't want the big 05 STi bearing, you could just get some Outback hubs and bring them to a machine shop to either reproduce with the larger bolt pattern or just drill and press new lugs in the OEM hub.

H&R makes strong TUV certified spacers like you need but I don't know if you can get the adapter type like you're looking for.

A swap to the 05+ STi hubs can be done....as well as SVX hubs which may be cheaper to source since not everybody and their sister is hung up on SVX vs STi.

^ that's a 1.5 stud though... you would want something in 1.25 so you could use whatever lugs you are currently using on your suby

thanks for bumping a super old thread though

Yes, can we point out the obvious fact that if you are getting a ridiculously wide rim, it won't have much offset. Then adding in a friggin' 15mm spacer you'll have even less. You'll be lucky to even be over +20 at that point. Good luck trying to fit 9.5" OR MORE wide rims at +20. They'll be so far past your fenders, they'll look like you set it up for open wheel racing unless you get a real wide body kit.

There are plenty of 5x100 choices. If you can't find one wide enough, it's probably because your definition of too wide is absurd to begin with. Rota DPT comes in 18x9.5 +44 in 5x100. Not that I'd recommend 9.5" wide rims for your car anyway.
