The wheel adapter consists of two separate pieces that will be assembled together:
Bottom Piece Attachment: The bottom piece of the adapter is attached directly to the vehicle's hub. This is likely where the original wheel would attach.
Second Piece Attachment: The second piece of the adapter is attached to the bottom piece. This is where the new wheel will be mounted. This second piece allows for a different bolt pattern.
Securing Mechanism: The second piece is secured to the bottom piece using countersink allen bolts. Countersinking involves creating a recess in the material to allow the bolt head to sit flush or below the surface to avoid interference.
Dowel Pins: Dowel pins are used in conjunction with the countersink bolts to provide additional alignment and stability. They ensure that the two pieces are accurately aligned before tightening the bolts.
Thread Locker: Thread locker is recommended for specific areas:
- On the lug nuts attached to the first plate (bottom piece). This helps prevent the lug nuts from loosening due to vibrations and normal driving conditions.
- On the countersink bolts that secure the second piece to the bottom piece. This prevents these bolts from coming loose over time.
- Compatibility: These adapters are designed to work with both factory and aftermarket wheels.
- Hub/Wheel Centric: The adapters are hub and wheel centric, which means they provide a secure fit and will not vibrate at high speeds.
- Hardware Included: The kit includes pressed-in studs and lug nuts, as well as all necessary hardware for installation.

Please note that proper installation and safety precautions are essential when using wheel adapters, as incorrect installation could lead to wheel separation, loss of control, and accidents.
