Question Bolt pattern Conversion worth it?

Ive searched but found a lot of old info on this. Traded my RSX in and got an 06 WRX. I was going to sell my 18 x 7.5 Gram Lights but I see that the Sti has the 5 x 114 pattern. Now on the 06 Wrx would it be just a simple hub swap or is it the majority of the suspension. If it is easy to do I would love to keep these wheels but if it is to involved I dont want to deal with the headaches.

I'm not sure the answer to that question.. BUT, if you swapped the bolt patter with an 05-06 STi then wouldn't you want to keep the STi brakes? Infact, I think you would have to, or try and make the 04s fit. Either way you end up with the STi brakes and im not sure... but I don't think your wheels are going to clear the brakes. Regardless, its going to be expensive. Best bet would be to sell your wheels and either get the same ones or find a differnt set you like. Best of luck to ya.

You mean the Gram Lights fit the RSX? You have offset problems, then, not just bolt pattern issues.

You will easily spend more money converting than you would just buying the same wheels with the right bolt pattern and offset.
