    i know for some of you these arnt so cool, but i have a set of 6 lug rims with 38's on them and a axle with 8 lug hubs, and i cant afford to go get wheels right now.

    my question is.... where is a cheep place to find conversion adapters to go from the 14BFF 8 lub hub to a 6 lug wheel, probably be like 1.5 inchs thick right....

    any help would be great
    p.s. (this is for a buddys hacked up rig, but quality spacers would be good, but cheep)
    Thanx

    Adapters may cost more than wheels.

    that may be true but the 6 lug wheels he has are beadlocks and are pricy and adapters are cheeper in that sence....

    probably don't want to "go cheap" on something like this... wheel parts are sorta like brakes and steering stuff. Cheap could result in death. In any case, you might try Performance Tire and Wheel. Thats where I got my spacers from... not sure if they make 8-to-6 adpaters though...
