I enquired about some today. Found out there's two different types. Cheap chinese cast alloy ones for about $50 each and billet aluminium ones for around $110 each. Also been told there could be vibration issues
with them. Insurance companies are also against them as they are technically illegal. Personaly I don't think they're worth it.

i think the cops will only bother you if they pulled you over.... cause if you drive past them they will only think you have changed the hole hub

Ive had my hub adaptors for 8 months now and have had cops go over the car and never said a word.

Get the billet ones not the cheap s**t and forget spacers...I got quoted i think with my wheel package $280 or $300 for 4 adaptors.
