I understand the interference issue, but 1" thickness of aluminum for each half seems a little overkill, IMHOopelspyder said:Looks like a pretty good deal-I'm surprised they only cost three dollars. The reason they are so thick is due to going to 5 lug----one lug of the 5 bolt will always interfere with a lug of the 4 bolt. It does make it where a better selection of wheels are available, but because they are 2 inches thick or more-you would have to find a high offset wheel. In the 4x100 most wheels are +40 anyways-so it might be just as well to use 4x100 spacers instead of adapting to other bolt pattern.
These are thick becasue; One, these bolt directly to the hub using the 4 x 100 bolts. Then the second piece bolts to the first piece and these have the 5 bolt pattern. I do not know if these are 5 x 4 or 5 x 4.5 but I'll measure when I go home for lunch and post it asap.jtb said:I understand the interference issue, but 1" thickness of aluminum for each half seems a little overkill, IMHO
If you were to go to the spacers to run a 4X100 FWD rim, a word of caution. In Canada, wheel spacers must bolt to the hub or rotor, and then bolt to the wheel; in other words, they can't just be a big shim sharing the same studs as the wheel. I don't know what the regulations are elsewhere, you may want to check it out.
this is one of the problems we have with e-bay posts ,auction ends and a few weeks late a thread is disjointed because we cant see what the original post is aboutClayton918 said:Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I think whatever you all were talking about here(the add on ebay can't be veiwed any longer) is what Iv been trying to find. I'd would like to be able to use 5 lug wheels for the variety it would provide, and was told there was an adapter you could bolt on. Where can I find these? I'm finding lots of 5 lug to 4, but no 4 to 5 so far... Also I'm putting fender flares on the GT so the thickness shouldnt be a problem...it might be just right.
Thanks in advance,
The adapters mentioned, the ones that were on e-bay, looked a lot like the one below, from e-bay. They were a two piece unit that bolted onto the hub and changed the pattern to a big 6-bolt pattern, then another set that bolted to them and changed it back. Because it's a 2-piece design, they tend to cost about twice as much as regular spacers. They also tend to be quite thick.Clayton918 said:. Is there such a thing or would one have to use a combination of two of them or somthing?
