Default Question

As we all know finding rims for jimmys or blazers is kind of tricky. I found a set of rims with tires very cheap. I have the 98 jimmy and I believe the batter is 5x120.65?? Anyway the rims I found are going to fit. Does anyone know where I can buy some adapters? The rims are the exact style and size I want and for the price I can afford to by adapters I believe

I don't know about any brands of wheel adpaters, but as long as they are "hub centric" or "even lug centric" you should be good.

i've been told to go with hub centric. The lug centric can cause wheel bearing issues

How does lug centric cause bad wheel bearings?
Any thing that puts a wheel out or in farther then its supposed to be can cause bearing problems, i.e. different offset wheels or wheel spacers/adapters.

Im pretty sure wheel spacers are illegal in some areas. the adapter will move the tire out further as well. too far and you'll get clearance issues.
