View Full Version : 5 stud alloys
Any one know what would be involved in putting five stud alloys on the ibiza cupra. I always read about adaptors being used in Performance VW mag but I get a sneaky suspicion it is a lot more complicated than that. Cheers
m0rk might know as he was thinking of doing this to his car.
needs new hubs & wheel bearings & brake discs
luckliy the rears kill 2 birds with one stone - just that the mk3 will need new stub axles too (I think)
Rears need the stub axles, discs & bearings from a Golfy VR6 but should just swap over & can continue to use your old pads
the fronts need the hub & bearing replaced (with 5 tonne press) and new discs. can't think of any VAG 280mm 5 studs off the top of my head
I was going to do this for my Leon Brake conversion (312's) but just drilled some more holes in the disc:)
I have some Anterra 143 17inch alloys that I think would look good on my Ibiza but I feel that to change over to 5 stud is going to me more work than it is worth. Thanks for the reply though Mork.
Any idea how much that lot was going to cost Mork when you were looking at doing it? I suppose if I could get some donor parts it would not be that difficult. How much did you get your front brake setup for also?
Or you could give me the wheels ;)
If you're thinking of selling them, let me know :)
i was just wondering what differences changing from 4 to 5 stud? or is this just so that you can get sdome wheels on??

mk3 golf gti just before they switched to 288mm
its worring I know this stuff off the top of my head:o
Yeah its just because I have a set of wheels already 5 stud so wondering how difficult it would be. Seems like it will be a lot simpler and easier just to get some 4 stud alloys though!
You can get spacers that convert the 4 stud to 5 stud, i'll see where my mate got em from over the W/E if i see him.
thats ok if you like the wheels outside the arches:p
