Default 5 x 5.5 to 5 x 4.5 wheel adapters FOR SALE

Need 5 x 5.5 to 5 x 4.5 wheel adapters

Where is the best place to get some for the bestest price?

The vehicle is 5 x 5.5 and the wheels are 5 x 4.5 so I think I stated it correctly?



THESE ARE FOR SALE NOW!

I just bought some on ebay from Titan Wheel Accessories (not same bolt pattern that you're looking for, tho). They are in MI somewhere.

http://stores.ebay.com/Titan-Wheel-Accessories

I looked around a bit and it seems that $25/spacer + shipping is the best deal you'll find for new ones. Make sure the center hole diameter is correct for your application as well.

Go HERE.

Decent prices, free shipping, included lug nuts for the adapters. Also, the guy was smart enough to notice the wheels I was going to use needed a bigger stud and let me know.

They cost a bit extra, but it was worth twice the price for the headaches it avoided.

I got 2: 5x5" tp 5x120mm (1.5" thick) and 2: 5x4.25 to 5x120 (1" thick) with bigger studs installed for about $250 shipped. It was the cheapest price I found, and the build quality looks awesome.

Thanks but those are double the prices I have found. If I wanted to spend that much I would just buy wheels.

I'd be interested to see what you think when you get those - and what size studs they come with - seems like a smokin' deal.

I recieved these the other day and they shipped three correct ones and one that is wrong. They are located around 9 mile and Mound and said they will meet up to swap the wrong one out. Will see tomorrow.

What measurement do you want for the studs?

Just the diameter - seems like all the ones I found for good prices had "skinny " studs in them. I was working on my truck yesterday and also noticed that the lugnuts they sent me for the adapters have a portion that fits down the inside of the adapter.

Hard to describe, but the thread length ends up being twice as long, which makes me feel safe.

Just found a good comparison:

They measure 7/16 and are about 1 1/4" long.

Those lug nuts look like they would not work with steel wheels? Only aluminum because of the thickness?

I don't recommend buying from these guys, sent me the wrong one and was supposed to bring me the right one. 2 1/2 weeks later I call and talk to the owner, who is an ass. They dropped the ball twice so I requested to just return them and he tells me no, they only have an exchange policy.

He is supposed to send me a return slip to exchange the wrong one out, 3 weeks after I ordered them.

This is just my experience so if you want to order from them beware the customer service is not the best.

They look pretty nice, I still have one incorrect one but will try and get it swapped out if you need them.
