I am the owner of a 1984 Subaru and like many people out there I want an all terrain tire and you can't find any 13" anymore. So I would like to see how many people would be interested in ordering a set of Wheel Adapters? I am having a prototype set being made now that are 4x140 to 5x114.3. This is one of the most common bolt patterns of the last 20 yrs so finding wheels in a salvage yard would be easy. I don't have a price on the adapters yet, but I am going to "GUESS" around 75.00 each or 300.00 per set. The body of them will be cnc'd from 6061 aluminum. All orders will require prepayment. Start posting.

I'm sure for some of the street guys this would be ok.  But for offroad a six lug swap is way better and cheaper.  Plus as bratman18 posted there are already some in the works.

im new to the forms but i actually have been following this topic closely and going back and looking at what every one has posted and i found this 






they are made from T6061 Aircraft Aluminum


i havent gotten a response from the dealer but hopefully i will soon 


also im more of a street guy and i did do the six bolt conversion on my spare hubs worked great (im running 15in rims now they look sweet) but i love the idea of more wheel selection on these sweet cars we've got and just thought i would share
