5 lug swap - quick quesiton

I've searched for info on the 5 lug swap, but every time I find a post, they swap the 5 lug hubs, spindles, 300zx brakes and what not and it gets really confusing.

So I ask, what do you need just to be able to run 5 lug wheels? The hubs for front and rear, redrill the stock rotors and of course the wheels? I have a set of wheels I can use if I swap to a 5 lug setup.

I don't plan on upgrading the capipers or rotors any time soon, just need to run 5 lug.

5 lug front conversion hubs, rear conversion hubs (or you can go the s14 route and what not), redrill your rotors or you should be able to get some s14 5 lug rotors.

bryan nailed it.

but if you're doing all the work to switch over to 5 lug, might as well drop in some new calipers

It has new oem calipers, 4 lug brembo rotors and new pbr pads. So I'd like to keep using them until i can afford a nice upgrade.

What is the cheapest solution to swap to 5 lug? Hub kit or s14 hubs? Will the stock s13 calipers bolt onto the s14 rotors?

Hub Kit and S14 hubs usually cost almost the same, but hub kits are easier to find vs. S14 hubs which are rare now a days.

As for the rotor question, check out the link below:
