Default wheel adapters

anyone ever used them?

i have a set of snow tires/wheels, brand new but for a different car

bolt pattern on new car is 5x114.3 pattern of wheels are 5x120

i see there is a company that makes them, trust factor in them? ive used spacers before and have had no problems but this is different. but if it works can save me a ton of cash

I wouldn't want to use them on anything that makes any sort of pah'

sell the wheels and cut your losses, buy the right stuff that fits. can't imagine after buying a quality set of adapters it'd be all that much difference in price to sell and re-buy the winter stuff

Jim, I have adapters on the winter beater for offset clearance. They are 1" bolt-on AND hubcentric so there's no vibration. The bolt pattern for mine is the same as OEM but if u use the bolt on kind, thread lock the inner bolts, u should be good.
