are there any downfalls to using wheel adapters on our trucks? reason i ask is that i got a a set of rims and tires for free from my cousin but they are 6 lug. i tow my boat with the truck and occasionaly load it up pretty good. would there be an issue? obviously i would be better off getting rims that have the same pattern but ill never find a set of rims for the same price that i can buy wheel adapters for.

thickness of the adapters can be an issue as well as NO Name brands.........If you do it make sure the adapter is thick enough for safety and strong enough as well from a Good Brand. Also make sure the lug studs are good quality. Remember the thicker the adapters are and the offset of the wheels you are using may stick them out further.

What he said, if you are set on getting adapters I would make sure they are from a well known company. Who knows what kind of mess you may get into buying a no name brand. I know Skulte makes a good wheel adapter but I'm not sure if they make them for our trucks. I know they make alot of them for Camaros and Firebirds.
