This wheel adaptor set ranges in thickness from 15mm-35mm. As thickness increases, optimal mounting bolt and stud lengths are maintained. Required adaptor thickness is dependent on the offset and width of your new wheels. Offset calculations are unique to each vehicle and wheel and should be carefully considered. If you need help calculating offsets, follow our technical guides to get started.
This wheel adaptor set is studded with your choice of studs depending on the wheels you are adapting. Each adaptor is accurately machined to allow the serrated wheel studs to be pressed into counterbores from the hub side of the adaptor. As thickness increases, wheel stud length and counterbore depth is adjusted to maintain the safest conversion possible. Grade 10.9 zinc plated wheel studs are used. Wheel studs are sourced from OEM applications and made in the USA.
Each wheel adaptor set includes (20) pre-configured mounting bolts. Mounting bolts are threaded M14x1.5 and configured to safely bolt the wheel adaptor to the vehicle hub. 15mm and 18mm adaptors include hex head bolts. These bolts are grade 8.8, zinc plated, and require a slim 22mm socket. 20mm-35mm adaptors include short head lug bolts. These lug bolts feature a cone seat and shallow head which allows the bolts to be installed without protruding into the wheel. These bolts are grade 10.9, zinc plated, and require a slim 17mm socket. Hex head bolts are made in Germany. Short head lug bolts are made in Italy.
Mounting hardware is pre-selected to fit your vehicle. No configuration is necessary.
Lug nuts are available in three seat styles. Seat style is based on your new wheels. Most OEM VW/Audi wheels use ball seat hardware. Most aftermarket wheels use cone seat hardware. Porsche OEM wheels use an oversized ball seat. Dont guess! It's very important to use the correct lug nuts. Check your new wheels before ordering.
