    Four to Five?

    Evening Lads!

    Right, I want GSI snowflake rims on my 2003 1.8 sxi, trouble is they are five bolt, and the SXI is four bolt... How can I work this? i know of 4-5 bolt conversion plates existing, but are they any good? Does anyone run one? If so where do i get hold of them?

    Any help is, as always, appreciated.

    Sam.

    Think most people just do a 5 stud conversion rather than using adaptor plates.

    Gives you the benefit of being able to do a 308mm brake upgrade at the same time

    Will be a list of stuff required somewhere.

    EDIT

    Found this posted by MatG

    You will need for the front:-
    2 x 5 stud front hubs
    2 x 5 stud front hub carriers
    2 x 5 stud front 280/308mm disks and pads
    2 x 5 stud front calipers and brackets

    You will need for the rear:-
    2 x 5 stud rear hubs
    2 x 5 stud rear hub carriers
    2 x 5 stud rear 264 disks and pads
    2 x 5 stud rear calipers and brackets

    The link also includes a guide with pictures.

    Cheers people, I know this isn't going to be a cheap thing to do, because not only do i want the GSI snowflake wheels, but as you said I'm going to do the 308mm brake conversion and/or possibly get some 888 4-pot calipers.
