    There are lots of aftermarket companys that make billit [​IMG] adapters, they are ALOT stronger but they`re not cheap! They`ll make any adapter in any thinkness that you need.

    There are adaptors that work butt they all move the wheel farther from the brake drum.
    If clearence isnt a problem then they work.
    If you are using aluminum or magnesium wheels then its not hard to change a bolt pattern.
    if you have slot mags with a solid center section (back side) you can just have someone locally bridgeport a new pattern into the wheel.
    I do this sort of thing all the time.
    I cnnot post pictures on this site as I am not smart enough to figure how to get my .JPG under 70K. I am trying to get some help here from a guy who understands computers.
    I have DSL so I never turn mine off. I only use it for email ebay and a few sites like this one.
    If you mail me direct with pictures of your wheels maybe I can help you.

    I have a pair of 3 1/2" Magnesium American Lemans wheels, if I change the pattern,is that going to mess-up the look of the wheels around the bolt holes?

    Sorry to highjack your post Kenny!

    I`m not in the market at this point because I paid the price for my rear wheels with a 4 1/2" bolt pattern. I will probably just drill my front hubs to 4 3/4" which is what my front wheels are. I really dont want to run adapters on the front.
