Been a while. Current setup. (Plus WekFest TX coverage)

I got my 4x108 to 5x114.3 adapters. Currently running on RacingHart MP3 wheels until I find something that fits better. Wheels are plasti-dipped pearl white by a good friend and owner of Dip-Tex. Gold chrome NRG lugs. Blah blah blah same old same old.



Before dip



Shot of it during roll-in to WekFest taken by the guys at Crushed Vinyl in Houston.



And dat butt












And here are a handful of other cars from WekFest Texas this year. More of my photos at the Goldilox Photography Facebook page.

How are the adaptors? How long have you ridden on them for etc? Which brand are you using? I have been contemplating running some 1" 4x108 spacers for the rears on my car, they would obv. Be the same design as your adaptors, bolt on. I'm interested in doing the 4x100-5x114.3 now.

Beautiful car btw, I've seen it around on a few forums, super nice!

Honestly, the adapters are okay. They took some work to get things together. Need to grind down the studs by about 3mm, then torque the plates together. My biggest issue with them is how big they are (39mm), so I have to run really high offsets. I have been riding on these for about 2 months, but I don't know what brand they are.

way too much going on...i agree with SYZ.

also get rid of the ebay headlights, the asian writing on the fender, it'll clean the car up a ton.

I liked the wheels a lot more before plastidip. And +1 for removing the euro plate.

What are the specs of those wheels, and how much do your adapters affect fit?

While I appreciate the input, the euro plate and the om ("asian writing") aren't going anywhere. The dip on the wheels is more of a temporary fix to a temporary set-up (there is a sizable amount of rash on one wheel, and I don't plan on running these wheels for very long).

As for the lights, eh. I don't feel strongly about them either way. I like them better than my stocks, which were damaged. And I thought the chrome housings would look less ricey than the black housings.

As for the adapters and fitment. That's been a headache. The adapters are two-piece, and altogether they fit like a 39mm spacer. So I end up having to run really high offset wheels. The wheels on there now are 17x7 +55, coming out to +16. The way my rear sits right now, I am at about -3 degrees of camber. Any wheels with decent specs I can find, however, would require me to go up to -5 or -6 degrees.
