    I used the "search" feature and couldn't find quite what I was looking for. I have a set of 35 Ford wires I want to use and I'm running a stock 46 Ford front and a 68 Ford 9" rear. I was told someone on here makes/sells adapters or at least can point me in the right direction.

    thanks

    Andy, can you post a pic of your spacers and why are they necessary?

    The cheap ones will work for your front setup but you need my thicker ones for the rear.

    Agreed! The spacer rings are for the 40-48 hubs. You need the thick ones for the later hubs.
    Here are my rings and a pic of a wire wheel showing the gap inside the bolt circle. Wheels will warp if tightened without the inside support.
