I know this is a side issue, but has anyone done the 4 stud conversion ( or got one from japan?) http://www5.ocn.ne.j...gkit/index.html
At least wheels would be available - check out the picks
Are you talking about a 4 stud or a 5 stud conversion??
I did the 5 stud conversion by importing the xt6 stuff to Australia, this was ridiculously expensive and there is better ways of doing this. You can get a conversion done to Liberty brakes for similar dollar value, and get better brakes in the process. Have a chat to a automotive engineer that has brakes experience, and also take as many photos etc of what you can get and they will be able to sort something out for you.

The conversion is a 4 x 100 pcd as in photos at : http://www5.ocn.ne.j...gkit/index.html
Seems the hubs can be redrilled to 100pcd and machined to take standard wheels - so 15" 16" 17" Wheels can be fitted.
Doesn't alter the breaks, but seems on the same page, alternate brakes are available as well. (if I could read Japanese)
I would like to have options I don't currently have...

You can get any engineering workshop to make that modification for you. All that is involved is to mount the hub on a lathe and cut the wheel locating lugs off and make the centre a standard size (I do 54mm) then mark out 50mm from the centre and then move the hub to a rotary table on a mill. The mill is then centred on the marked 50mm radius line, now, when the rotary table is turned the mill will always be above the line. The hub is then centre drilled, and drilled out to 13.5mm and then reamed to 14mm, then the rotary table moved 90 deg and repeated. Then new studs are pressed in and the next hub finished. You shouldn't pay more than $3-400 to have this done. I know that Mark Haybittle Engineering in Sydney was charging $660, but that was some time ago.
