Default Wheel adapter for 87 Wagon

I have a 87 GL-10 Turbo wagon and Im tired of those god awful 13 in rims. I found this web site BYB
that can supply wheel adapters to fit WRX rims on my baby. I found a sweet deal for the rims, but I would have to get the wheel adapters from over seas. I was just wondering if anyone of you guys/gals know or maybe make your own wheel adapters so that I can slap some 16's on.

Default Re: Wheel adapter for 87 Wagon

Inform me of these "wheel adapters." It sounds to me like they bolt onto the regular 4X100 hub you already have on the car, and then give you a 5X100 "hub" if you will to bolt the WRX rims on... Two hubs in one, basically...

If so, they would screw up your wheel bearing so bad it wouldn't be funny. You're really screwing up your suspension geometry doing that...

The best thing to do would be to convert your hubs to the 5-lug ones. Search the USMB forums. I believe Dr. RX has done this conversion...

I know how to do the 5 lug swap, and just don't want the hassle. I don't know what the hell this adapter would do, but it sounds like it would work.
