I have used and have a pair of 1" "spacers". Same as an adapter just the same bolt pattern used again.

I use these to correct the rear track width on chevy 4x4's with good results.

Never run them but have seen them run with no problems. Don't think I'd auto-cross with them though.

As Puppy said, I have seen tons of them on the 4x4s to correct the track width. I don't see where it would be any less strong than a wheel with an extra thick mounting surface. I also run them on my ATVs. I'd drive my truck across the country with them and never think twice about it.

K, so for everyday driving they are fine then? I have a line
on some wheels for the 81 but they are S-10 pattern. So I
would have to get adapters to run them. (Most are 1.25")

TTT, So if going on my 81 Blazer it looks like from 4.75 up to 5.75
are the normal BS most people run. Since most adapters are 1.25"
you would want wheels around 6.00 up to 7.00 if using adapters?

Ed Zachary. Find the correct BS for the width wheel you're using and add the thickness of the adapter.
