6 lug to 8 lug

i know i have seen the spacers to adapt 8 lug to fit 6 lug wheels but i cant find it anywhere. i know the site it was on said you have to have the 8 lug axles turned down to fit the 6 lug. someone please help.

Re: 6 lug to 8 lug

What application is this for?

There are normally better options than spacers....

Re: 6 lug to 8 lug

If i remember right, someone is selling 6 lug outers or something for the 14 bolt FF over on pirate. A link was posted on this board not too long ago, take a look around or wait for someone to post it again.

Re: 6 lug to 8 lug

Generally spacers are a big "no no", because of the extra stresses the put on an axle. With the 14ff the stress shouldn't harm it if you use a small spacer, depends on tire size though. Somebody sells a small spacer that is pretty much just an 8-6 adapter, and since the rear axle is naturaly narrower than the front wont look funny or anything. My advice would be keep the 14ff out until you have money for tires and wheels if at all possible, but if need be buy the spacer and just don't thrash it while you have the spacers in there and you should be ok.

Re: 6 lug to 8 lug

Those are spacers, but not 8 to 6 lug adapters, unless the page changed....

Yeah I looked for a while to find the site that sells them but I couldn't find it, I know that I have seen them though.
