I'm considering obtaining "hubcentric adapters" for a set of slots I just got (their center hole is larger than my stang's hubs/axle shoulders). I know mag type lug nuts support everything well, I would just like to center the wheels and take some of the load off the studs.

I was wondering if anyone has sources for these "wheel pilot bushings" of sorts. Thanks.

no, they'd be a sleeve, basically....there is a chamfer on the back side of the center hole in the wheels; I'd get a 45 degree shoulder that would interlock there.......and the wheel's centersection would still be against the rotor/axle /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

Yeah, you really are making a issue out of something that is not an issue. You also making an assumption that the snout of the drum/rotor you are mounting to is perfectly centered. Dangerous assumption.

On the other hand, if hte wheels rely on the lugs to center the wheels, you get a truer center.
