    <font color="orange"> TonyP </font color> is the designer and fab man that makes those, maybe you should ask him.

    Sorry haven't tested it, but I did order some 14 bolt spacers from TonyP and it is almost the same thing. I'll let everyone know how they hold up.

    i was thinking of ordering but you're gonna still have to have your hubs and axle shaft flanges machined to a smaller O.D to fit the adapter and your wheels over it and by the time you pay for the machining and spend the $200 on the adapter you could have the hubs machined for a 6 on 5.5 pattern while you were having them turned down and do a 6 lug disk conversion for about the same price i.m.o.
    but they would probably be the way to go if you were going to keep your drum brakes
    later
