    They used to be sold on echobit, but I think it was Waxer making them. PM him on here. If he wasn't the one, he'll likely know who was.

    i am pretty sure there should be 8 studs holding the adapter on and 6 going to the wheel.

    The overlay of the bolt patterns does not allow for use of 2 of the 8 studs. The missing studs are 180° from each other. That is the only way I have seen it done. There really isn't a strength issue. An 8 lug uses 9/16 studs and a lot of 6 lug use 7/16 studs (WTF?)

    not at all, alot of guys are running 1" to 2" inch spacers on there axles, and the six 9/16"inch wheel studs that hold the spacer ring on are alot stronger then the six 7/16"inch wheel studs that hold the rim on...
