Hub adaptors.. they bolt onto your exsisting hub and have another set of studs that the AU offset wheel bolts to.. do some reading on them first though.. people are 50/50 love hate these things and also check with vic roads on legals for em.

I was talking to a guy at a wheel store in slacks creek today, and he does hub adapters.

Acknowledged that they are illegal, but he does them.

Now how do you go about insuring if you use hub adapters?

lol dont tell the insurance company about spacers....
just that the car now has rims....
lots of places do make them but always say not our fault if you use them on the road.

Planning to get these once my parents move to the middle east...

Would the grip difference between 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 be cost effective?
