Ok so I've got a new set of rims I want to run and need some help from those that have run spacer/adapters.

I need a 1/2 spacer maybe a max of 3/4 in to run the one pair or rims on the rear, but I've heard conflicting info about doing so.

I've heard you need hub centric spacer/adapter. Others saying that billet is best and so on.

Can anyone shed some light on this topic for me?

Looking for both good and bad reviews and what has worked or not worked.

I think that zq8blazer used to run hubcentric spacers. Maybe he'd be able to tell you something

Get hubcentric, I have 1.25". If you have hubcentric wheels then the weight will be on the center of the spacer, not on the lugs like a non-hubcentric spacer is. Some people don't have problems out of non-hubcentric spacers, but there's no doubt that the lugs will receive wear from the weight of the vehicle being on them.

Here's the place where I purchased mine. I don't think I've ever seen a 1/2" hub centric spacer before, I might have seen a 3/4", I can't remember.

I'm pretty sure this is the seller that I got mine from.

Thnx. I needed to figure out how to get my Iroc wheels on the rear. So much info out there I'm hoping that they will hold up with some power and racing. I was thinking I could do 1" adapters.

Well I did order adapters they were 25mm thick.(1 inch).

Had some issues with them fitting on the hub due to them not milled out to spec of 70.5mm, they were 70.3mm.
