Default 5-lug conversion question

I guess this is a noob question.

But I am not understanding the reason for a 5-lug conversion on a car that has 4 lug. If anyone can enlighten me I would appreciate it.

most people do it for the looks but it does provide bigger and better brakes.

plus it is a thing most people overlook and is something that true enthusiasts know about. it isnt always a jdm thing. there are brake benefits as well. but there is 1 downfall. no more 13" slicks.

Did mine for the brakes and because I got an incredible deal on the parts from a local yard. The ITR brakes on a CX are incredible. I still have the OEM pads in there and the stopping power is great. It would be almost scary with some good after market pads.
