the 5 bolt is doable and yes you would have access to better rim selection. most people find whole celicas in the juck yard and strip the 5 lug off to do there conversion as its all bolt on stuff! you shouldn't have issues sourcing a donor car to do this conversion.

I have some Racing Hart C5 knock-offs in 4 lug that I really like

To do the 4lug to 5lug conversion, you should probably grab all four knuckles and brake assemblies. Would be a good time to go to a rear disc setup as well. Look for a GTS.

My friend had them on his CRX, and I bought them from him, so I couldn't tell you where to buy them.

Enkei RS6.

You want a 4x100mm bolt pattern with a 38offset at 7".

That gets you flush with the front fender and about a half inch set in on the rear.

The wang!!!! Hells yes! Murg, i liked your car then, too, before you took the wing and decals off. :)


As for decently cheap 4-lug rims, check out XXR. Formerly known as Sportmax. Good, cheap, light, strong wheels. They're all knockoffs, but look good.

Rota makes a lot of 4-lugs, too. You can often find used Slipstreams on honda forums for cheap in great shape. I'm a HUGE fan of black polished slipstreams, they look amazing.

IE: 5x100. 5 bolts, 100mm apart.

You have 4x100.

www.edgeracing.com is cheaper. A lot of us have used them, thus we know they are good, great service and fast shipping. I personally use them for my wheel and tire purchases.

Also, it is a good idea to read all the posts in your thread, I told you the bolt pattern and backspacing you needed in the third or fourth post. ;)

...You want a 4x100mm bolt pattern with a 38offset at 7"...

another question so that means i would want like 16x7" and offset meaning 'et'??

Yes.

The wheel diameter just refers to the size of the tire you will be needing to fit it, be it a 13" through 18".

The Width of the wheel directly relates to the offset. You can try and mix and match to get what would fit and look good to you, but in the effort of saving you time and effort, I have given you my specs, which I know are right.

On a 7" wide wheel, at 38 offset (meaning yes, 38 et as well) is what will bring your front wheel flush with the fender.

If you go with an 8" or even a 6" wheel or half sizes between you will have to adjust the offset accordingly.

I am trying to keep the information simple though, so as to be less confusing.

You want a 4x100 bolt pattern, and a 38 offset (et) on a 7" wheel to fit with no issues.

Nice! We have the same rims and almost the same car 'cept mines a hatch. Question did you use gorilla bolts ,spline with a key? Did you still get a security lock nut on top of that? I didn't coz the bolts are really deep in the rim but then anyone who has the same lug nuts will have the key...
