What is a wheel spacer?
Wheel spacers are used to widen the stance of a vehicle using the factory wheels. Unlike Wheel Adapters, spacers will keep the same bolt pattern as the vehicle. Spacers are available in two designs, hub centric and lug centric. (bolt-on/slip-on) Hub Centric designs center are hub piloted, meaning they center on the hub of the vehicle. Lug Centric would mean they are centered only by the lug nuts. ‘Slip-on’ style slide over the existing studs, so it is important to make sure that there will be enough thread left past the wheel spacer to secure installment of wheel. ‘Bolt-on’ style bolt to the hub of the vehicle using the factory studs and provided lug nuts. The wheel can then be secured to the studs of the spacer using the factory lug nuts already on hand.
What is a wheel adapter?
A wheel adapter is used when installing a wheel that has a different bolt pattern than the vehicle. Adapters are commonly used to change the bolt pattern in order to properly fit wheels from one vehicle to the hub of a different vehicle. eg “6×5″ to 6×5.5″” or “14×1.5 Studs to 9/16 Studs”. They can also be used to properly fit aftermarket wheels of a different bolt pattern. Wheel adapters and spacers are available in hub centric and lug centric designs. (bolt-on/slip-on) US Wheel Adapters does NOT manufacture or sell adapters that convert lug counts. 5 to 6 lug, 6 to 8 lug
