cheers for the comments guys.

The adapter fit fine. They came with the correct nuts and just slipped straight on. These ones have a raised circular lip on the outer face so it centers the rim on the adapter and the wheels are supported by the hab as well as the studs.

Heaps of people hate them but my uncle has been using them on his 4x4's off road for years and never had a problem.

Well if the hub is helping too, and not just the studs, then you would think it would be pretty safe.

Mannn, why can't they make good looking wheels in pre-au offsetttt.
