Answer to "What 5 lug hubs can I get that will work for my Nissan S13's ABS"No. Most aftermarket hubs will not support the ABS system in a Nissan S13 240SX due to a lack of ABS rings. Because the ring is factory pressed in and are extremely fragile it is not possible to transfer them over from an oem unit either. If one wants to keep their OEM ABS system the best route to swap in 5 lug hub components and retain the ABS is to purchase Nissan S14 5 Lug Hubs and the corresponding knuckles (S14 OEM Front Knuckles - RH_40014-70T10 & LH_40015-70T10). Doing this ensures the proper functioning of the ABS.
