    Has anyone "hub swapped" from 11+ wrx to sti ???

    Disclaimer: I did search already....lol

    Has anyone successfully swapped from the wrx's 5x100 hub set to the sti's 5x114.3 hubset from 2011 or newer?

    If so, what parts are needed overall and about how much did everything cost approx?

    The wheel selections obviously get expansive with the 114.3 pattern.

    thanks,

    I'm sure there's people that have...I've been thinking about it but it would be easier and cheaper to get spacers that change the offset. Otherwise you need to replace the steering knuckles which would mean new struts and I think new calipers and pads. Don't quote me on that though just a guess

    Yeah some further research tells me that it may not be worth the associated costs.

    I'm afraid it would require different drive shafts, then those don't fit the diff... You might end up replacing the whole drive train...

    What for? just have the wheels further out? Get rims with less (or is it more?) offset.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?
