5 Lug Conversion?

is there any way to do a 5 lug conversion on a focus? i know it doesnt have a solid axle like the old fox bodies but i would love to have a 5 lug conversion and some black/chrome lip staggared fr500 wheels.

In order to that you would esentially haave to put your own 5 lug hubs and then change over the brakes.. its allot of work.. but were theres a will theres a way...

Its cheaper just to choose different rims IMO

A more standard bolt pattern would be sooooo much easier....

I remember seeing a post a little while where some dude re-drilled his rear drum and front hubs on a VW to fit 5 bolts. It was done by a machine shop of course... and it would have to be 100% perfect.

It would probably end up costing more overall but at least you would have a broader choice of rims locally.

Does anyone know more about this? I'm really interested in going to 5x114 pattern. (Brake and wheel choices are huge in this size) Please let me know. :)

it is possable, you just need to change the entire suspension to mazda 3 stuff! I mean everything, lower arm, spindle, hubs, strut (have to keep the Focus Upper mount) brakes and so on. Oh and you would have to get the axles from the "3" as well, but you would have to brake them down and combine the "3" and Focus axles, Focus Inner shaft with a "3" outer stub shaft. In the rear, you would need the blade control arm, spindle, hubs, brakes and so on. Rear shocks and springs dont matter as the do not mount to the hub. Hope that helps.

U posted in a 2 year old post lol. Most guys redrill there hubs to the bolt pattern u want. Example buy new hubs and bearings(doesn't hurt since everything is off) redrill the new hub for 5x114 install new arp wheel studs. 2nd thing u also have to redrill ur rotors in the same pattern(so they fit the new 5x114 hub). I will be doing this soon also. My plan buy 4 new wheel hub/bearings,20 arp wheel studs,new front & rear rotors,and pads while im in there. Ur looking at $200-600 in parts depending on setup. But u open up a world wait make that a universe of wheel options(other than custom wheels) vs 4x108
