Default Rugged Ridge Alloys...

Just wanting to confirm that there is no possible way to make these fit on my truck...
http://www.quadratec.com/products/92604_201_07.htm
heres a picture


from the research i've done i believe my ranger has a 5x4.5 bolt pattern and the 07-10 jeep wranglers have a 5x5 bolt pattern... therefore its a no go right?
this is so disappointing.. if those woulda fit i honestly think i woulda gotten them in either solid black or black with the polished lip...

YES!!!!!!!! you've successfully made my day... now whats the catch with these adapters... they obviously can't be "good" for anything but are they bad??

EDIT: nooo i just read and it looks like to get the adapters you have to get a wheel spacer?!?! well i guess that makes since now that i think about it... if your gonna stick some medal things in between your hub and your wheel to change the bolt pattern there gonna have to take up some room which therefore creates a spacer

how bad are wheel spacers?

EDIT 2: i changed the picture of the wheel above... the other one made it look like crap

just making sure if i get these right here it will make that wheel fit on my truck correct??

I'm no expert, but I believe wheel spacers are viewed negatively because they push the wheels/tires outwards which shifts the weight outwards adjust the type of pressure being applied, which can cause accelerated wear and tear. It would be like holding a weight next to your chest, versus having it extended all the way out. Once again, not positive, but that's my understanding.

Also, I would definitely recommend you shy away from wheel spacers since you said you were considering going to 35" tires, which would only compound the negative effects of wheel spacers.

Did you think of contacting the manufacturer and seeing if they will build you a custom set for extra cash?

My opinion is the same as these guys, spacers are a bad idea. They do cause accelerated wear and can just lead to know good. I know plenty of guys that have run them safely with no problems. But it only takes a second and you just screwed yourself good.

There was a guy on R/F that bought XD rockstar wheels from the make, and had a machine shop drill the holes out.

Hm i might look into getting them custom made. As for 35s i wouldn't run 35s with spacers either. I understand that 35s multiply the stress that spacers create so i would only go with 33s. Can wheels be bought without any holes in them and then take them to a wheel shop and custom drill them?

Thanks for all the help guys. Just curious what are yalls opinions of the wheels themselves? Good..Bad?

I don't know if you can get blanks, but in my opinion, bad ass wheel.
