Default wheel adapter help

Has anyone tried putting on the 1.25" wheel adapters or have pictures of these on? Would this size wheel adapter be a big noticeable differance? All criticizm and advice welcome. Thanks in advanced.

What is a 1.25" wheel adapter?

Do you mean 1.25" wheel spacer? If so then yeah I have ran wheel spacers before. Nothing wrong with having them as long as you have long enough lug studs to compensate for the spacer......
Whether or not you notice the difference...... Yea Im sure youll notice it a little if you are lookin for it.

instead of just going inbetween the hub and rim the wheel adapters bolt onto the hub or whatever and then they have new studs on the adapter and the wheel mounts onto that. Thats how you can convert to different lug patterns. Juts google it for pictures for best explanation

I know what a wheel adapter is for adapting lug patterns. Are you buying these for that purpose or just to space your wheels out farther? Why not just get wheels with less backspacing if the latter is the case?

Yeah but it would be safer in the long run to just buy wheels to fit the truck. I know people who have broken these going down the hwy and had a wheel come off.

I didnt know what you meant by 1.25" wheel adapter. They are all gonna space the wheel out . I wouldve understood had you said 5 on 4.50 to 5 on 5 wheel adapter. Sorry
