Default Downgrading 93 EX brakes to LX brakes?

Does this involve simply swapping the rotors, or is it more complicated?

I bought 13" steelies before checking if they fit. They have new tires so I'd like to get some use out of them.

Dude! Just sell those steelies and get something else that will fit. Its not worth downgrading your brakes for some 13 inch steelies!

It is much easier and less of a hassle to buy bigger wheels.

To change the brakes from EX to LX you need smaller calipers, rotors, pads, the different lx knuckles.

please tell me an eventual lock on this is in the near future. the safety you are giving up and what you are risking by downgrading your brakes is insane...get bigger steelies or leave on what is on now.... to answer your question IT IS more complicated

Lock? Why?

LX brakes are insanely unsafe?

OP the idea of downgrading to an LX brake system doesn't make finacial sense. Simply get 14" Civic steelies.

Okay. It's definitely less of a hassle to get bigger steelies.
