Anyone have any luck/experience using a hub adapter that allows use of various size bolt patterns on the Alfas 5x98 hub? I see some listed from several sources on eBay - looks like most are 3/4''-1'' wide. any other options? Thoughts.

Thanks,

James

I went to 4/100 on my Alfetta GT to get better looking wheels. Not much available for 4 by 98.. Worked out GREAT....You should be OK.

Thanks for the reply's - going from 5x98 to 5x110 will not allow for the offset lug bolts as the spacing is to much. So I think I may have to go with the adapters- will add 3/4'' to offset bringing the wheel out farther. Not sure of the look- will have to check to make sure wheels/tires fit in wheel wells without rubbing.

Thanks everyone

My son has used the adapters on his RX7 (4 to 5 bolt) but they will push out the wheel accordingly. Just make sure they are properly mounted so your wheel does not roll of into traffic.

can't you get the same wheels in 5x100?
I use 5x100 on my gtv6 with variation lug nuts. No complaints.
Cheap and effective.

I don't like using spacers as they change the handling of the vehicle so using PCD bolts are a better option.

spacers are matched to the disk so that there is no load on the bearing, the steering has changed, the car goes on rails
