can i take my factory drums and discs from a 87 gl wagon and have them drilled at a machine shop to fit the pattern of new wrx wheels? the large center hole is my concern, as i have picked up a set of these with new tires that are like excellent condition, so i dont want to get to excited yet...

Why not just do the 5 lug swap?

Im not gonna thrash you or laugh.

Im just saying a 5 lug swap is probably your best bet for putting those WRX wheels on your car.

I will find a couple links and post them here for you... Utilize the search function for the 5 lug swap stuff... It will skip the term "5" though.

I believe that when you do the 5 lug swap, it also doubles as the 4 wheel disc brake swap, but with the 5X100 pattern instead of this god awful 4X140 pattern.

:banana: Thats my plan on my EA82 eventually.
