convert 98 CL 3.0 4 lug to 5 lug from 98-02 Accord V6?

I just got my 98 CL 3.0, sweet car..I love it. I notice the suspension off my gf 98 accord v6 is very similar to the CL but different bolt pattern . I wanted these wheels real bad but I gotta go 5 lugs. I'm wondering if anybody has done this? I tried searching but didn't get any answers.

These wheels only come in 5x114. Has anybody here swap in Accord V6 brake counterparts like the 5 lug disc rotors and hub assembly into their CL?

i posted a link to the write up for a 5th gen accord at the bottom of the page (same as early 1st gen cl's)...not sure if 98 came with hub over rotor or not so just go over it

I believe the 98 is "rotor over hub"...does this mean i can just swap out these parts out in favor of a Accord V6 5 lug hub?

i really don't know...not familiar with the swap...and what parts are interchangeable between 5th gen accords and your cl...best bet is to contact the writer of the article..he's a good guy

ok great, i was looking over the 98 AV6 and 98 CL 3.0....both front disc are 11.1 and calipers are the same. The rear disc doesn't look any different either. I hope we can just swap out the 4x114.3 mm hubs, bearing, and disc out.
