Hey, check out RIDEX Wheel Hub in the AUTODOC app https://m.autodoc.be/ridex/15796296

Not sure if that link will work but the front and rear hubs are on sale at the minute.

Interesting idea, buying just the hub centre and doing it that way, rather than changing the whole knuckle.
You'll need to do all 4 wheel bearings at the same time though (can't get the old hub centre out the old bearing without wrecking it).

Yep, very true about the bearings alright. I'm sure the car won't mind that though!

Iam confused. I thought that is not possible? Because then there would be literally no need for the knuckles to swap? Do you know about that Titzon?

I wanted to replace all bearings anyway.

However i gotta check if i can buy them at Honda now, because i really dont want any ridex stuff in my car (brakepads on DC2 lasted 2 weeks..)

I'm not sure what you mean by the "knuckles to swap" tbh.
It's just an idea I had when I was changing the hubs and bearings on my 5th gen a few months ago.
I don't see why it wouldn't work but there's loads of folk on here more qualified than me to answer that.
