Hub conversion

Has anyone researched into, or actually done, a hub conversion from 4x100 to 5x114? I'm wondering if the Veloster or Forte hubs are the same.

Have no knowledge on that but if it did work, you'd need more hardware than just the hubs.

Yup. Most the time you need a full spindle. Depending on how the spindle is made, you may have to change a lot. Brakes may mount different, caliper mounting tabs could have different spacing, tie rods, control arms, even the splines in the hub could be different.

part numbers are all the same across Veloster/Rio/Optima/Sonata, so a 'big brake' upgrade is entirely plausible without major work

Part number for what? Because surely you cant be saying the hub assembly has the same part number considering the Rio is 4x100 while the others are 5 lug.

Sorry, you are wrong about your statement. Hubs are not the same, no way they could be................

he may be talking about the bearing itself being the same which means absolutely jack diddly. So lets go on his big brake upgrade is easy. So you press your hub out. Press in an Optima 5 lug hub. Now what does that have to do with caliper mounting? nothing. Brake lines? different. You would have to mount a rotor, measure height and spacing and then build a spacer - and then you can bolt the caliper. Then you have to worry about the lines. Now the calipers take more fluid to operate and the master will be insufficient. Then you have to upgrade the master and add in a proportion valve because the stock proportion block is setup for the baby calipers.

nah guys, if you compare the part numbers for the hubs between the two, they're the same.

Here, proof. Knuckle and hub assy is the same.

And master cylinder/booster assembly, same part numbers.
