with adapters you'll most probably be replacing your wheel bearings every 6-8 months depending on how often you drive and how you drive... some people
argue that there unsafe... I haven't used them personally but i have changed
many front hubs for friends that have... enjoy

X2. I wouldnt't use adapters. If it were me I'd have my rotors drilled for new studs.(very cheap). That is if you have rotors all the way around. What kind of vehicle is it? I hope your not talikng about 1" spacers thats a big no no.

i have a 97 f150 and was given a pair of rims that fit a dodge. i was gonna sell them but my dad bought me adapters for $170 because he needs my tires on now for my brothers work truck and hes used spacers before on our 61 apache but he wasnt to sure about em. so i dont know how long ill have em on i just need them for the time being and yes their Wheel Adapter 5 Lug 135 To 5 Lug 5.5 1" Thick.

i have wheel adapters for my porsche wheels. they are race ready. from H&R. had no problems. now you dont just go getting what ever size. as they will effect the final ET of the wheel. keep that in mind

I could see using a few mm thickness spacers, but I would never, ever use a spacer as big as 1". Your wheel bearings will crap out on you.

I had to put longer studs and .75" spacers to get the backspacing right for my monte. Works fine.

I have a friend who used adapters (I told him not to) to fit 17s on his camaro. 3 months later his wheel falls off.
