Yes, if you have two piece rotors you won't have to do it again.

So I finally got my new r53 wheel hub.
Yes, I'm going to convert my r56 wheel hub to r53 wheel hub.
Why am I doing this? Because the adapters I'm getting from Adaptec only work with r53.
R53 have 12x1.5 lug bolt compare to r56's 14x1.25 lug bolt.
So the project will continue I will be posting a step by step process of the project.

Here is the website of Adaptec make sure to ask for JR

Instead of swapping hubs you could of bought the studs that step down from 14mm to 12mm.

It won't work because I'm using an adapters and you need to use the actual lug bolts that comes with the kit...

I'll have some pictures tomorrow I'm finally installing the hub and adapters.

Hi guys so I just finished replacing all my wheelhub and some was really easy and some was hard.
The hardest one was the front passenger side wheel hub because of the length of the axel.

This is what the back looks like without the wheel hub
So in order to remove the hub you would first need to remove the brakes.
Warning if you are going to uninstall the brake make sure you have the right tools to push back the piston back to its place.
Then you would have to take the rotors off, and then remove the four bolts that's holding the hub together.

Is this with any camber? or just roughly 0 degrees? And what are the final specs of these wheels with the adapters?
