Where can i find an 8 to 6 lug adapter for a rear 14 bolt ff?
Buy new wheels with 8 lugs. Like discount tire, or belle tire...etc.
but when i rotate the tires i dont want to have to take the tires off the 6 lug rims and put them on the 8 lugs and vise versa
you can change the front to 8 lug for under $200
This has been discussed many times before. It can be done (and has), but it requires custom machining of a lot of the14bff parts and usually ends up costing more than the front 8-lug conversion and new 8-lug wheels.
There is no bolt-on wheel adapter for this. I looked for somebody to make them for me and couldn't find a company that would. It would have to be very thick and it's strength would be questionable since some of the bolt holes have to be very close to each other. Plus, you 6-lug rims would have to have the center hole enlarged out pretty much into the lug nut area, which is obviously not good.
Another option is to use a 14b s/f in the rear since they can be converted to 6-lug easier. Of course they aren't as strong.
A member on here, MrBill, had a new set of adapters we were trying to sell for him at the swap meet. He still has them as far as I know.
Forget adapters, drill the hubs to 6 lug. Theres a member here who does it to the hubs.
There is a member around here (TonyP) that custom machines these.
You can also find adaptors at:
Here's a pic of a redrilled hub and a pic of an adaptor:
