Conversion on what? You didn't list any car details.
Here's a Google search for all of H-T using the keywords 5 lug conversion civic.

You will want a swap from either 98+ CTR or any US ITR. The JDM ITR 5-lug has different/larger axle splines in the front. You would have to change your outer CV joints to use them (or swap out to the US hubs and get new wheel bearings).

Given the same offset of rim, the conversion will push each wheel out by 5mm in the back and 7.5mm in the front.

Other than that, it should bolt on I think.

Your high.

5 lug normally goes for around $1000

Why the hell would ever spend 2500-3k for 5 lug?! That is just stupid.

I had the chance to buy 5 lug, with ctr wheels for 1050. Brand new tires, pads,rotos,front wheel bearings.

This is just to give you a hint for what stuff goes for.

no im just picky . I bought 2 used sets and i just was not happy with the condition of the conversions . The calipers looked like crap and rotors were heavily rusted . The studs also needed to be replaced .i do not regret it one bit . my 5 lug is brand new and will last a very long time

You could have fixed the issues and still be left with money in your pocket. but, to each his own.

I do know you mean though, I bought 99 SI breaks, and dumb *** me didn't check the calipers. Low and behold, all 4 are frozen, and front bearings are shot.

I knew better, and still didn't look.

Even then, I only paid 250, for EVERYTHING under the car, and sold some stuff to be at about $150-175 in it total. The front sway bar/lcas are worth that.

If you are really that concerned, do what I did. Buy a bushing kit, press it in, replace the rotors, good to go. No reason/need to spend 3g's on that. That's crazy
