Ok, whats the go with hub adapters ...
Why are they illegal, and how can I hide them ;)

Can you get rims drilled to suit an offset ?

or maybe change the whole wheel assembly to suit my new rims offset??

not too sure why they are illegal

paint the adapters the same colour as your rotors. i.e paint rotor and adapter balck or something.
theres no drilling to be done to fix the offset as the offset it the distance from the hub. its got nothing to do with the wheel stud positioning.

changing the whole assemble is possibble but not worth it. cost too much

The only way to hide them is not to use them if you have an accident NO INSURANCE!!!!!!! if pulled up and car checked a HEFTY FINE for an unroadworthy vehicle I know it hurts but find out BEFORE you get the wheels if they will fit your vehicle :roll: :roll:

bit late now ... :|
makes sence ... the tires on the inside are less then a pinky distance from hitting the strut tower...

I need to make them dissapear without removing them from the car :P
Obviously they need to be on there for the rims to stay and i aint taking em off now, not after what i paid for them, i refuse to let them sit in the garage...

How much an what am I looking at to change the assembly to suit?

yeah, course i have

adr approved ones, they are only illegal if they're spacers.. spacers being washer type ones unlike ones in the fotos on bretts (same as mine) which are adapters wihch bolt onto your hub then your wheel onto that.

porsche's come out stock with them
