Wheel Adapters

68 Camaro.... I would like to space out my front wheels 2" more by using a wheel Adapters, (old School) will this cause problems like breaking off studs or put to much pressure on the wheels when turning. Thanks

Re: Wheel Adapters

Not a good idea - increases scrub radius as well as bearing load - and you still won't get that deep dish look. The one thing you will do for sure is greatly increase the possibility of the front tires rubbing the fenders.

Re: Wheel Adapters

If you have stock wheel studs, I'd be surprised if a 2" spacer would leave any stud sticking out...

Yes, and rubbing
Not recommended.

Re: Wheel Adapters

Our cars are stock w/ 2.25" front-spacing/3.75" back-spacing on a '67, 14" x 6" steel rim!!

and if you go 1.25" out, or you will cut your tires by the chrome lip trim at full droop!!

You gotta get your width by going IN using b/s'ing so figure out what works.
