Best way to convert an S14 to a 4stud?

Recommended Posts

as above...why? would also be a downgrade in calipers i'd guess. i'd assume the na hubs would be a straight swap.. and i guess s13 gear could be used (press in s13 balljoints into lca i'd assume)

but again why? to me this is like dividing something by zero...

All that trouble to try n make the car look gangsta and ur gonna run rota rims lol funniest shit I ever heard.

 

At least that white s15 is running quality rims so it would b worth the down grade.

 

For cheery blossoms or equips i bet alot of ppl would sacrifice, but for rota's lol get off the crack n get back to work, at least save up n buy the real shit no some wannabe copy.

Would NA S14 hubs be a bolt on affair?

Would converting with S13 parts be not worth it?

You could have had a read of how chriz did it but to many f**k heads on here ruined the thread, try and send him a pm

realistically its going to be easier and cheaper to get the Rotas in 5 stud. They come in tons of sizes so if your dead set on them its much better option to try find some in 5 stud.

Its also going to cause problems if you do a brake "downgrade" with the Fuzz....

Ive tried looking round online but they dont seem to be manufactured in 5stud. emailed both the aus distributer and the manufacturer in phils about either getting them in 5stud or atleast a blank set so i can get them drilled myself. both have yet to get back to me.

my last option is seeing how much of a hassle it would be to go 4stud on my s14. thus posting on here. which i hate cos as u can see above, too many over opinionated poptarts fail to see that not everybody on earth is into spending obscene amounts on japanese made rims just so they can tell theyre mates there car is "JDM" while still living at home with there mums cos they cant afford to move out....

 

thanks tho, lovelove =)

Blah blah blah, he asked the question what is the easiest way to do it.

 

At no point did he ask for advice on wheels, you clearly have nothing valuable to add to this thread so please fork off.

 

Philrayho I'm fairly sure you can run the 4 pot calipers provided you get some spacers 25mm should suffice.

 

Best off to speak to chriz about it though cause he has done it.

more like a 35mm spacer, or a 30mm with a shitload ground off the caliper.

 

rear you just use s13 rear hubs and re-drill the rotors to 4 hole, fronts you really need s13 LCA(or s13 balljoint in the s14 LCA) s13 knuckles and hubs. clevis is going to be fairly loose as the s13 gear uses a 12mm bolt and not a 14mm bolt.

I would usually never question you Blingo but are you sure on the 35-30mm I have seen it done with 25mm bolt on's ... maybe there was something else done that I overlooked?

that is if the wheels have 0 caliper clearance (like most old school 15s). the calipers sit 34mm proud of the hub face
