Is there a demand for bolt pattern adaptors?

Heck, I guess put me down for a set too if they go into production. I have some gold 17" Subaru Legacy GT wheels that would look pretty sharp on the ol' wagon.

Just a Thought.

Less work to the better.

Has anyone thought about the width these will cause. It might be fine for people going up but for those going down kinda hard to tuck in these wheels as it is. If you add a half an inch to that there going to stick out more.
Just a Thought.
I've done some head scratching over a lot of things with these darn wheel adaptors... lol you are only looking at one side of them machined.. the other side will be a LOT more involved to say the least, in the end you will have an extra .600" of thickness to deal with, which isnt too bad compared to most bolt pattern adaptors. The "theory" is anyway that the 4x100 or 5x100, etc... adapted patterns will have availablilty for wheels with better offsets to keep those rubbers tucked under the fender

my concern is durability. Plan in the far future to slap them onto my RX. Will be doing spirited driving on and off road and rally cross.
Think they will be tough enough?

I just did wheel bearings on one and I was amazed at how thin the metal was and the fact that the hub itself was half the size of a EA82.

I saw you did a spacer for the FF1 project... what thickness can you do? I was wondering about just using a spacer and keeping my chromes instead of going to a wheel adapter...

Long story short... how thick do you want? anything over 3/8 of an inch and you should probably have me look for some longer wheel studs...

You have somebody over here kinda begging for some redrilled EA81 hubs to the
I was going to go with a full lego/imp swap into my BRAT, but if I can get the
hubs redrilled, I may not go with the full swap.
I may just swap the struts and go with the adapted hubs.

Seeing as people are excited about these things again, and I am beginning to walk again... I suppose I could bring the project out of the grave and have another whirl at it... I do know a lot more about what our CNC is capable of, and how long it takes to machine stuff, etc...
No promises people, as I am relearning how to walk (broke my ankle in a go-kart moment of stupidity)
