    Why? Going to a 4 stud is not the best thing to do, its outdated and in all fairness useless,
    Dont also forget that good wheels in 4x114.3 are actually harder to come by in decent sizes,

    Stick with the stock stud pattern,

    If you are really hell bent on doing it then just go and buy Galant wheel bearings as they are 4 stud stock

    It would be a million times easier to just sell them and buy wheels with the correct lug pattern even if you could find 4 lug hubs that could be modified to work on a 2G DSM. You'd have to match axle diameter and spline count at the 4 lug hub or else make custom CV axles that mated to the DSM transmission.

    Square peg round hole.

    If you have size 12 feet you don't buy size 8 shoes and ask a doctor to cut your toes off, do you?

    All 7th and 8th gen galants should be 4 stud, the VR4 models in europe at least all came 5 stud

    You are changing the entire hub. As stated above it would be way way easier to get new wheels. Cheaper too. The manner in which you ask the question suggests you aren't aware just how much work this is.
