Only suitable if the wheels are not dished.

I would assume due to the way it will alter the offset of the wheel

So i am assuming the adapter works just have to ensure the rim of choice has clearance??

It basically a spacer that also changes the PCD using a second set of studs instead of using longer studs in the original position.

I was Nick was getting was that since they’re a spacer you don’t want to run too deep dish of a wheel as you’re pushing everything further away from the hub and putting more load on the wheel bearing.

I would avoid buying any car parts off amazon and try to find somewhere slightly reputable like Demon Tweeks if you plan on using wheel adapters. It’s something that needs to be of the highest quality possible not something that a copy of a good part made from sub par materials.

And changing the scrub radii and other things to the wrong side of good.

Let us know the outcome in the end, if you get it there, please share how! If it's all as simple as sellers want you to think it is, should be as easy as breathing  :lol:  :lol:

...and that's before even thinking about which nuts to use to screw them to the existing studs, and whether they have any way of centring them (if the nuts used can't perform that function)

If you've not chosen your wheels yet ... why not simply buy wheels with the correct pcd?

And stop limiting you wheel options.

Yeah, I have some wheels in mind. I have seen them used once before but was unsure how they were able to mount them. they are 13x6 4x100 pattern with +38 offset. 

 

I actually feel opposite, the wheels are limited with the current 4x4 options. Most minis i see have a variation of the same rims

I know Force Racing used to offer drive flanges and rear hubs + drums machined with pretty much any PCD you wanted.

I probably would never bother as I like the look of 10” wheels more than anything else but if you want to run something big and euro looking then changing the PCD at the hub is the best option.

And thickness of this thing is an inch! That's a lot of spacer. I would not do it to be honest...
