What's the thickness on that adaptor? And did you cut off the ends of the stock studs?

I like that the adaptor has a hubcentric lip to it. What's the measurement on it?

It is a 1" adapter but you can have them made in a variety of differnt thickness.

I took a grinder to the stock studs and ground them back about 1/8"-3/16" just a small amount (just about enough to get rid of the dip in the end of the stud and like a thread or so). Then used open ended lug nuts that sat just a bit under the adapter to hold it in place.

I had it made with upgraded studs as well as not only being hubcentric but then wheel centric(hubcentric to the new rims) to the stock Corvette rims. I forget the exact numbers but if you look up stock GM 5bolt pattern rims for Camaro or Corvette it is set up to be hugcentric to their bore and bolt pattern. I have about 1/4" or maybe a lil more of room behind the wheels all the way around even though I am running the stock negative camber :thumbsup:

Where did you purchase the adaptors from? And what's the offset on that wheel? I would imagine it would have to be pretty high to counter the 1" in spacing from the adaptor.

Why did you do this? Wouldn't it be more cost effective to just purchase a set of aftermarket wheels?

I did this because most of the rims I found that had a good width of around 10" that I wanted were for RWD and not FWD.

I am planning on running about 285 all the way around on the car and might go bigger for DR or Slick set up. There was no way I could do that with what is avalible for FWD that I could find but a ton of stuff for RWD.

And heck getting stock rims from other cars that fit my needs is a lot cheaper then after market ones.

Those 4 rims with the KDW on them(on 700miles on the tires) only cost me $500. And I have seen people letting the 18x10 rims for vettes go for as cheap as like $75 each.

16 X 8
5X120.7
12mmX1.5
that is the rim width, bolt pattern and lug size that I went over to. The offset I belive is a +55 on the rim that is on there I should be able to post up all the information for sure about 5ish tonight when I can go through email more.

It was all about the deal I got on them is why I ended up with that set actually:thumbsup:

These will be on the car till I can find what tires I want to use for sure and then I will search out the rims that I will need to fit the tires on after that. And if you think that looks off now wait till you see the during constrution of when I have to start cutting up all the fenders to make the really big wheels fit:rofl:

Why....oh why????

Sometimes I just scratch my head. And wanting to put 285's on a neon??? Umm....
1. That's way to wide for our little neons.
2. It will look......
3. There are better ways of getting traction.
4. Have you checked how heavy a 285 is?

You should say for YOUR little neon it could be just about right overall for mine and what I want
2. It will look gay.
At least I will end up being far enough ahead of most people they will not have to be tramatized by it for long :thumbsup:
3. There are better ways of getting traction.
Only to a certain point then you have to go bigger with your rubber. And really can anyone have to much traction
4. Have you checked how heavy a 285 is?
Depending on the tire it can vary from I think 3-8lbs more per tire than around a 225

Thanks for the explanation although I'm still not sure why you did it or how well it will work. You will soon realize that the extra money spent on this could have been well invested into other methods or achieving maximum traction that do not necessarily require a wider tire and wheel combination.

Good luck.

what size tires are on the car now? is there any concern about the strength of the stock studs?
Right now the car has 245 KDW mounted on the stock Camaro rims.
The stock studs stick out more than far enough into the adapter plate and are securly bolted. I had these made so they would be hubcentric to fit clean on the SRT and also so that the GM rims would fit the adaptor hubcentric as well.
