Adapters

Postby LukeM » Sun Nov 20, 2011 6:52 pm

Hey guys I am new here as of today.

I had a question about wheel adapters.

I want to run 3rd generation camaro wheels (5x120.7) on my 95 Beretta (5x100)

Can you suggest some adapters i could use?

Thanks :D

Just search the web for adapters... Issues you will run into is the rim offset plus what the adapter offsets it which then results in your final offset, it could be too much and push the wheels out and cause rubbing in some areas. Just keep that in mind.

As Jon said, research your offsets. Luckilly third gen wheels have a ton of offset so after adapters they are closer to beretta fitment.

You will need to play with spacers and cutting/rolling fenders most likely

I'm a fan of being flush, but not so much that you need to roll the fenders or bend crap to clear.

I have 1/2 spacers up front because I'm running the N-body brakes which pull the knuckle in some so I had to space it out for the tire to clear the spring perch.

Flush goodness! this results in a lot of rubber being deposited on your ground fx and door though if you drag race often... I'm getting ready to install the splash guards I have to keep some of it off the car.

The rears tuck in and they did rub due to the 225 tire and rear disc brake upgrade, but I just took a little bit of metal off the inside of the fender well and all is good.

Looks like they gave you quite a bit of poke Mike, I will have to do my offset research for sure but I'll keep you in mind because that is a pretty damn good deal

Thanks guys
