    Which one is easier to convert an EG hatch to? 5x114 or 4x114. Or are they the same?

    Curiosity I guess, I also kinda like those off white rims.

    to tell the truth IMO its not really worth it
    i have a 5 lug conversion on my car and it is a pain in the ass to find a decent 15 rim with the right lug pattern and offset


    they are either crap rims or cost more than i care to spend on wheels that i will simply beat up on the track

    In a 5 lug conversion (or 4 lug 4X114 Type R) don't you end up with better brakes b/c you'll be using Type R rotors and calipers?

    Couldn't you just use the oem Type R rims with that pattern? or would the whole thing be too costly?

    you can use the OEM ITR wheels
    they are expensive and heavy... not that big of a deal for street use... but if you want to get a set of track wheels that are somewhat light and dont suck they are hard to find without spending stupid amounts of money

    a better way of getting bigger brakes is to go with the fastbrakes/wilwood setup

    Hey good prices on those brakes.

    For wheels I'm thinking 15 x 6.5 or 15 x 7, so they should fit under just fine.
