Q & A

What's in the Box

These wide 5 wheel adapters are 3/8" steel with 5/8" UNF studs. Adapts your "early modified" wheels to todays more popular bolt patterns.

Must use spacer with drum brake. The bolt heads on the back side of the adapter do not sit flush, contacting the brake drum. The thickness of the spacer would depend on the specific brake drum being used, but the 1/4" 916-58210 or 3/8" 916-58212 should work for many applications. Both of these spacers would work on the 916-58250.

Wide 5 Adapter

July 02, 2015
I purchased this so I could have my wide 5 wheels and tires balanced for use on my street rod...building to resemble a 60's era modified coupe. I do wish the ad reminded me that I needed to purchase the lug nuts, which I am doing today. Not the fault of the product however, just thought they might have been included.
Yes, I recommend this product.

'36-'38 Ford Wheel Balance Adapter

May 21, 2015
We will use this adapter to balance Ford wheels with the 9.75 bolt pattern. No one is able to balance these wheels with the modern wheel balancers. When we spun the adapter up on a wheel balancer it came in at zero weights required; it was already in balance. You must buy the lug nuts shown in the catalog because they are 5/8" and your car lugs will not fit.
Pros:
  • Zero Balance
  • Good Fit
Cons:
  • Oversize Lug Bolts
Yes, I recommend this product.

The WIDE 5 ADPTR 5-4.5" & 5-5in, part number: 91658250, are designed to adapt a 5 on 5" or 5 on 4 1/2" rear ends to a 10.8" bolt circle with a 3.107 dia. center opening. 1/4" or 3/8" spacers, part number: 91658210 or part number: 91658212, must be used with drum brakes due to bolt heads extending on back side. If your Model A has a bolt pattern and center opening agreeable with the above, then the adapters will work.

Part number 91658250 This adapter is available for the GM 5 on 4 ¾ pattern to the wide 5 under part number 91658251 which would require a spacer either ¼” or 3/8” thick under numbers 91558210 or 91658212. This wide 5 is 10 1/8” bolt pattern which is outside of one stud, skip one stud, and to the center of the next stud. If you are trying to run your pickup wheels on the GM rear end you will need 4 ¾” hub to 5 on 5” bolt circle you will need adapter number 7203612.

Single Sided Steel Lug Nut, 5/8 Inch RH Fine Thread, Single Taper
(Part #91003913)
                        

Use these oversized 1 Inch Hex Steel lug nuts in plane of those 'puny' stock size lug nuts.

You will need a 1" hex (6-sided) socket. 

5/8" Fine Thread fits most racing wheels.

  • 45° taper
  • 5/8" RH Fine Thread, Single Taper

What's The Angle
Most racing wheels have a 45° seat for the lug nut to seat in while most street wheels use 60°. By using 45° the lug nut is able to clamp tighter over a larger area, which helps keep your wheels on the car where they belong.

If you mix and match street and race wheels or lug nuts you are just asking for trouble. All our lug nuts are 45° and designed to be used with racing wheels.
