Got the P1800 hubs drilled and tapped for 5x4.5 tonight. The studs are Strange Engineering 1/2-20, 3" long. They are so long because I anticipate running a pretty thick spacer on the front, but worst case I'll just screw them out and get some shorter ones. I got the thread in type because the hub really doesn't have much meat left on the outer edge of the hole after the re-drill. Just using a thread in type let me have a smaller hole diameter than a press in stud would, thus more material on the outside of the hole.

Repainted the hubs today and got the brake rotors fit. I had to drill the lug holes in the rotors out from 12mm to 14mm to go over the 1/2" studs, but that was quick and easy. I did a quick test fit inside of the wheels and the initial results are promising. The caliper won't clear my wheel without a spacer but I intend on having to run one anyways so no worries there. The clearance of the outside of the caliper however is great, no worries on them hitting the 16s. I think this will be plenty of brakes for this thing, as it's pretty light and the vented rotors are a big upgrade over stock.
