4 Lug to 5 Lug

To convert from 4 lug to 5 lug is it as simple as getting the hubs and everything outboard of them (brakes, wheels etc..)? Will the hub mounts bolt right in?

From Bridfi @ .net.

"dont convert to 5 lug, if you do, youd have to get the whole rear assembly for the axle, the hubs, and the brakes, also the front youd need the control arms, the hubs, different axles because the splines are different, and youd have to figure out how to get that axle to fit in your transmission, or just swap cv joints... if you can.

just get aftermarket 4x100s theyre everywhere, the 5 lug pattern is actually harder to find nice rims for... because theyre not a standard 5 lug pattern, theyre 5x110 or something like that which sucks.

ive researched this extensively, because i wanted to go 4 lug, and after much reading, ive decided it is not worth it 1000 times over"

I think you just saved me a bunch of money, and guess what, you're not Geico.

Yeah. 4x100 > 5x110.

The 5x110 is a Saab pattern, so until GM suddenly decided to start using it on other cars in the last few years, it was rare. 4x100 has been around for ages, so the aftermarket support is plentiful. If you were going to take the time/money to do a 5 lug swap, 5x114.3 would be a better swap.

That being said, there isn't a real advantage to ditching 4x100.

That is going to be one expensive set of wheels, when everything is said and done.
