Unhappy help - advice needed

got new 18's yesterday 5 x 114 with hub adapters to fit my 5 x 100 blob eye. Prob is they are rubbing on the arches. Can anyone verify that the hub flanges off an 06 on will fit my 2003 wrx hubs. This would definitely fix my problem as the spacers are 20mm thick and i dont think they are a great idea anyway. If you've done it please let me know as I'll gladly purchase the new hub flanges with the 5 114 and fit them to my existing hubs! Wheels are gold inovit rd1's so the offset should be ok on a proper subaru hub.

Your just making a bad job worse with the hub spacer things, I wouldnt even run straight 3 or 5mm spacers never mind the ones you have,
your better off selling the wheels and buying some that fit correctly.

I want the spacers off. The question was can I convert to the 06 pattern using a standard subaru hub?

Re: help - advice needed

the 114`s are a totally different hub as they run different wheel bearings so Id say ur looking at all hubs/shafts etc, is it really worth it?
