Hubs or adapters?

I bought some enkei rpf1's for my 06 WRX but they have a 5x114.3 lug pattern. I got them because they were like 50% off and I was just thinking about throwing wheel adapters on. Although I have herd mixed reviews. Some people say the adapters are fine others say they are the worst thing ever. I also herd about getting STi hubs and rotors but they don't quite fit on the WRX axels. I'm not racing my car in a track or anything. It's just my daily driver. What should I do???

It's going to cost you over twice what those wheels are worth to run them. Hub swaps are the only valid, viable way to change bolt pattern. However that runs north of $1,500 to do. Adapters should never be considered a worthwhile option.

Sell them and get ones that fit.
