Wheel Adapters: Hub Centric Only Okay?

I am looking to get some wheel adapters after I get my lift installed. I notice SpiderTrax are the popular choice to go with. They are listed as hub AND wheel centric.

There is a company in Reno, NV that makes good quality wheel adapters, but they are hub centric. Would that cause any issues? A lot of guys on the Titan forum I frequent use these.

are you sure they are NOT wheel centric as well? does it specifically say they aren't? im thinking that maybe they are and its just not mentioned. why would someone go to the trouble of making it hub but not wheel centric as well? what is the name of the place in nv? do they have a website?

At the time, they actually listed both hub only and hub/wheel centric adapters on their eBay ads. It is a moot point now as they seem to only offer hub/wheel. The hub only were a bit a cheaper.

The hub/wheel adapters are $225 shipped (compared to $226.98 for Spidertrax through Quadratec). The price is a wash. I don't know what Spidertrax's warranty is, but BORA has a lifetime warranty.

As much as I would like adapters, Discount Tire told me they won't work on my Jeep if I have adapters.

Dont cheap out on wheel spacers. Get hub/wheel centric. Unless you dont care about your safety or the safety of others!

Several guys have the BORA adapters on their pre-runner Titans, and they hold up great.

Again, Discount Tire won't work on my wife's Jeep if I have them on, so I am going a different direction.

All you really need to do is find a wheel you like in the right back spacing and offset and not have to worry about running spacers. Im kind of glad I dont have spacers anymore and my wheel tire combo worked out get. For the price of spacers I only paid about $150 more for my wheels and they look so much better on the Jeep then the oem.

New wheels along with OEM/4xGuard Belly skids are on my list.

First priority is getting a limited slip differential for my Titan.

I have Black Rock Series 997 steel wheels in matte black, 17x8 with 4.5 inches of back spacing. Unfortunately though, up front the wheels just made contact with the brake caliper bracket, so I had to order hub/wheel centric 1/4" spacers for them to clear.
