Icon5 5-lug to a 4-lug 4x100

I know im probably am going to catch alot of **** for this but **** it. Its my car and i can see what the end result is going to be. Is it possible to convert a 5x114 hub assembly to a 4x100 hug assembly? Is it possible to switch/change the part out with another honda lug assembly? I am a big fan of the jdm 4 lug's and the old school OG rims. If possible these are the rims i want to put on my 97 base model with tein comfort coilovers.

Re: 5-lug to a 4-lug 4x100

those are sick wheels... where did you find them?

also,
since u are looking for a conversion from 4 lug to 5 lug

is it possible to fit the 97-01 lug wheels onto the earlier 92-96 model with an adapter of some sorts?

Re: 5-lug to a 4-lug 4x100

Love the wheels man! I would imagine you would be able to do it, I know some 5th gens (UK maybe?) have 4 instead of 5 lug. If you did do the conversion it would probably have to be with a Honda, I'm really not sure though.

It'd have to be from a civic probably. The Accord's were 4x114. At least the 94-97 4 cylinders. (6 cylinder came with 5 lug) Maybe possible with a pre-94 model? Not sure what they're pattern was.

Re: 5-lug to a 4-lug 4x100

the wheels are also pretty small... they only come in 15 inch... you would probably be better off looking for wheels with 5 lug that are slightly bigger because even the stock wheels are larger, 15's might look too small on the bb6 prelude

Anything is possible with money, but I'm not sure about it. You'd be limited to getting the conversion parts from a 3rd gen Prelude or a 90's Integra or Civic. What I'm unsure about is if there's any brakes from any model of those cars that's comparable to the beefy brakes that come on a 5th gen. I'd guess an ITR would be your best bet, but I don't know many of those being parted out, so you'd end up having to settle for much smaller brakes which is much less stopping power for a rather heavy car, so if you do any kind of racing, auto-x, or aggressive driving, you may want to take that into consideration if you're going for 4x100. 4x113.3, you can get from a 91-02 4-banger Accord or 92-96 Prelude. The S and Si brakes are slightly smaller than the VTEC brakes, but they still have adequate stopping power.

5-lug conversion. Get the parts from a 5th gen. rich045 made a thread with all the parts required for it. I forget the name of it though.

Damn. So much to reply to lets see i understand the hassle of having a smaller rim but i cant seem to find a decent set of 5 lugs with the lip that i want i like huge lip rims or the "JDM" old school rims to me they are classic and hold class some of the rims I've seen by volk work ssr racing hart and axis are nice but im trying to be different....

The brake clearance is a huge issue seeing as i am like many of you agressive drivers at times. I though about the acura legen double piston caliper swap which granted it is not bigger but the double piston would make a difference.

The rims are small granted 15's only look good if the car is sitting on its balls and a serious camber degree but i like the look. The 17's are nice but why not 18's? Are the 17's the optimal size for a 5th gen? Im not looking to add the lip kit just the mugen style front bumpeer side skirts and rear valance's( i think that is how you spell it), add a beefer set of tires like the yokohama advan's or another aggressive tread.





hate it or love it i like them.

Its looking like the 92-96 prelude might work. I have to wait until the guy calls back. If so im will to trade bolt patterns.

ive gone on ebay im not really seeing the specs for the drilled rotors but ill keep looking.

wow maybe i should have read this a couple times before i decided to post it i am sorry for the grammar long day

18's ride like ass. Don't forget, the bigger the rim, the smaller tire you'll need.
If you're just going for looks, 18's do look good, but the ride quality is horrible in every Lude I've been in with them. I even had some on my 4th en with stock suspension and it was still rough.

17's are just a good balance between performance and style. 16's are the optimal size, which is why Honda put them on there.

There's a lot of debate on cross drilled brakes. A lot of people say they crack because of the weakness of it not being a solid piece. Others say it depends on who and how they're made. Personally, I'm not a fan of the drilled. Brembo blanks are PLENTY good, but the slotted aren't bad. They help but the pads go out faster and if you're not racing at the drag strip every week, the blanks are fine.

Re: 5-lug to a 4-lug 4x100

I see I see so no 18's ive heard different things about the drilled rotors as wheel but it still seems like alot of people get them brembo blanks hmm i will have to do some research into those.

I stumbled across these something that might be well worth keeping the 5 lug amd the come in 17's. Decisions Decisions....

i currently have slotted rotors on my 4th gen and i get a ton of brake squeel.. many people tell me its coz the pads r worn out but theres still about 75% left on them...
any ideas on that?

also, aren't drilled brakes better in the sense that they cool alot better than solids or slotted?

I've seen some very similar to those on a 5th gen and they look really good in person.

It can be a lot of things. If there's that much wear left, it might just be the quality of the pads.

As for if it cools better? Read this. I should have posted it earlier in the thread. It should answer about ANY question you have as far as blanks, drilled, and slotted rotors go.

i read that threat but they all seem to be confused...
ive heard a lot against slotted rotors and i currently have them on my lude and i noticed the pads do run down quite quickly.

but if these drilled rotors are so bad then why do wilwood supply them on their 4 piston big brake kit for the 4th gen?

Re: 5-lug to a 4-lug 4x100

Because it's for the look of it, and because Wlwood casts them that way so it's not as bad as having the rotor actually drilled after its been made. Same reason Ferrari uses them on their cars.

bingo. big difference between casting it that way and actually drilling the rotor. i've had brembo cross drilled rotors on my m3 since 2004. brembo also casts their rotors that way (unless you're buying them from ebay people... they're known to buy blanks, drill them, and sell them as cross drilled). never had a genuine brembo cross drilled rotor crack on me.

its a big brake kit by wilwood but how can i be sure they're cast that way or just drilled?
