    If this is the wrong place for this please go ahead and move it to the appropriate place, no explanation nesscessary. I am getting ready to do the 3/4 ton conversion on my blazer but I recently purchased new wheels 6lug and new 33x15x12.5 tires. Does anyone on this site make 8 lug to 6 lug adapters? I would prefer to buy off a member but if you know of a cheap source for these please post it. Thanks in advance! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif

    Try this. Spacers

    Also helps to check the product reviews and tech articles of the site. Will answer alot of questions that you may have.

    That link is for spacers not adapters. I also clicked the link on that page and it didn't have anything either. But thanks for the info. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Good source, but not cheap. Sams offroad in Tulsa, OK. But I dont know if they make an adapter separate from the spacer. Google them but I think it is www.samsoffroad.com

    Just get yourself some 8 lug steel wheels. Adapters are not safe in my opinion.

    (Here comes the rant from people that have adapters)

    I had a pair of these. Truckin.com
    I ended up selling them before I ever used them. You have to have the hub machined to get the adapter to fit. They used to be $99 each.

    I have a brand new set of adapters laying around, I bought them with the intent of using them but then I ran across a dana 60. Nevertheless you can email me at JWT_01@msn.com if you are interested.
