4 Jaw Chuck Just think how often you have to retorque aluminum wheels and how often you are going to tighten those inner bolts.

They are a recipe for disaster.

montea alright thanks for the replys everyone, i will not use them. just sell em

it would suck if a wheel fell off driving... do alot of damage and get in a car accident.

MustangSix I would not use those Transdapt adapters. They are just cast aluminum and will break if you hit a curb.

However, there are billet adapters that work extremely well and are very strong. Look at the ones sold by Spidertrax for Jeeps, as an example. That's the type you should look for.

I have a set on my 66 Mustang so that I can run late model wheels. Fits great, no danger of breakage.

montea heres a pic i just took also of my car with some ponty rims i got. 215/65R15 and the tires have about .5-1 inch clearnce from the frame in the rear.the front they almost rub on somthing when the wheels are cranked full. how do they look on the car? just gota decide wich rims i should use..

oh yes and how do i find out what back spacing the rims have and what i should have.

montea ok so ya sounds like i shouldnt use the adapters because its harder on the car.

he wants $100 canadian for the cragers. they are starting to get rusty around the bolt holes but not bad... shows alot in the picture though. i just took a pic of them in my room, wants me to buy them or put them in the paper and sell them for him, he doesnt live in the city so no one wants to drive far to look at them.

OddRodder I would never use adapters on the front end! I have seen one break under hard cornering!! 1967 GTO goes bye-bye!!!

even if you did get those cragers and the adapters are they the right back spacing??? personally i wouldn't go with the adapters they are putting a load on the brgs where it wasn';t designed to be and its the hack way of getting wheels to fit.

montea how are they not safe? weak and break?

My friend was gona sell me a set of cragers for $200 wich is cheap but now they arnt the right bolt patter they will not fit on my car or his. he said he would give them to me for $100 (canadian). i really like the rims. front 15x6 and rear 15x8.

4 Jaw Chuck The offset would have to be correct with the spacer installed on the rim, personally I thing they are accidents waiting to happen and wouldn't recommend there use on any vehicle.
