  • There's no reason it wouldn't work with the stock master. People have used much larger brakes and calipers before.

    • sorry to resurrect and old thread but, has anyone re-drilled the stock hubs to 4x114.3? it seems wider wheels with better offset are more often offered in 4x114.3 then 4x100. or possibly use the l-series hub and re-drill it to 4x114.3?

      • I assume that you are saying 5x114.3 on the L-series? Either way the hub from a L-series won't work on the S-series without a bolt on knuckle design.......then you'd be able to go with pretty much any GM bolt design. Its a lot of modification for very little gains IMO.

        • nah I want 4x114.3, easy to find cheap good sized wheels in my area with that bolt pattern. and that does sound like way to much work after I re-read it. ordered adapters yesterday, just sucks going with adapters cause they push your wheel out a bare minimum 0f 15mm.

          • I don't really see 4x114.3 offering that many more wheel choices then 4x100 since that pattern is common on old VWs and so many hondas and such. 5x100 would be ok since subarus and some hondas use that, but 5x114.3 would be ideal. L series use 5x110 which sucks for wheels choices. The only Saturn it seems that used that lug pattern was the Vues.

              true enough. but at the junkyard there are tons of 240's with wheels, and some of the older jap stuff run the same pattern as well. for me 4x114.3 is awesome, at least for junkyard stuff lol. 5x100 Subaru wheels would look yummy

              • I'll just dig this thread up from the grave, gimmie a sec....

                They seem identical, just ION ones are cheaper and have wheel studs. And maybe "bolt hole MET" of M10x1.5 versus M10x1.25. Not sure what that's referencing. Mount bolts minorly different thread most likely, different nuts then.

                It's not my fault, blame the radiation.
