i would say to search honda-tech. theres people who have done it by using certain wheel bearings mated to a particular hub and knuckle. worth the hassle? maybe not unless you got tons of spare parts around.

If you read the entire thread, the rear hubs are being held on by only 2-3 threads. it greatly increases the chances of breaking the spindle and loosing a wheel. make sure you have your life insurance paid up.

lol, this is just to say you have five lug with out spending five lug money. its not done all the time because doing it this way only lets you use the 5x1.14 wheels. but doing it this way doesnt give you typeR stopping abilitty. if you want some thing like this done its easy press out your hubs, have them redrilled in a 5x1.14 patter as well as your rotor to match and your done. five lug wheels with out five lug money or stopping power.

there was a shop in PR that you would send them your 4-lug assemly and they would drill an extra whole through the hub and rotor to place a lug. then they would move one of the original lugs so that everything measured right.

when ur spindels came back you had 5-lug, also with no need for buying type r calipers or any of that, and i think it was something like $500 for all four spindles.

sounds ghetto, but the work they did was clean as hell, ill have to ask if they r still around. i first heard of them cause one of my boys had it done on his ew4 hatch back in 02-03.

The fronts are actually rather easy, the front hub assembly from the 97-01CRV is the exact same thing as the USDM Type R, so go to your junk yard and get those and your half way there, the tricky part will be the rears, there is a DIY on Honda-tech that tells you how to use your 4 lug rear arms with the 5 lug hubs, bearings, and a mazda something nut to hold it all together, also the RSX type s rear calipers are the same as Type R as well so you can put it all together for alot less than the conversion you just need to research and be patient.

rsx/ep3 rears mount the ebrake on the bottom of the assembly, so you have have to swap the calipers from left to right to address the e-brake which makes your bleeder valve points down, so more work to bleed. Otherwise you lose your e-brake. Simpler to just get ITR rear calipers. Bolts right up to the regular 4-lug rta.
