After I thought about it, I remember that adapters and spacers used to have a really bad rap. Since then, they've improved so much.



My friend Jerd is running 2 inch adapters and has NEVER had a problem between 2+ sets of adapters he has owned.

17x9.5in Corvette Sawblades.

I know, but as long as he doesn't buy adapters or bolts from the 80s he should be okay.

Brake cables were the wrong type, so I'm just going to buy a set at the bike shop here, as well as new derailuer cables, and have my friend that works there put them on while we drink together at his place.

Well I even ran it by a few guys at the shop with tons of car experience and they all said that they snap. One of my co-workers has a friend that snapped one off going through the city here going 35 and he ran into a building because the car couldn't stop.

Sorry, but even if I can't find exactly what I like, I'll still go with one that has the correct bolt pattern lol.

Sounds like user error if you ask me.

VW guys use spacers and adapters all the time, never heard of any of them complaining about bolts snapping.
