From 5x4.5 to 5x5 bolt Pattern ADAPTER????

I have a 2006 TJ Rubicon with a 5 X 4.5 wheel bolt pattern and I am considering buying some lightly used Walker Evans bead lock wheels that are a 5 X 5 bolt pattern.

What are the thoughts on using an adapter/spacer to get to the 5 X 5 bolt pattern? What problems could arise using an adapter? Is it a no problem situation or a watch out situation. My rig is a weekend driver only and although I don't wheel as much as I like to, I do run moderate to challenging trails that sometimes need some serious skinny pedal action.

Here is an adapter that I am looking at: http://www.amazon.com/Spacers-Adapte...ype=automotive


2006 Rubicon, Detonator Yellow, 5.5" Clayton Long Arm lift, 37" Pitbull Rockers, Atlas 4:1 transfer case. Dyntrac PR60 axles (RCV shafts in front), ARB F&R Lockers, Superwinch Talon 9.5 Winch, Metal Cloak Fenders, Currie Antirock in the front, Clayton TJ skid, Genright Crawler gas tank & skid. Fox Coilover shocks in the rear. 5" WB stretch.

Make sure net backspacing not too low. Make sure you get quality adaptors. Install them correctly. All will be good.

Realistically the net backspacing is your real issue. Not sure what Walker's wheels run, but my Raceline beadlocks are 4". If I put on adaptors I'd be sub 3" probably. Not sure I'd be comfortable with that.

Thank you. I think I will go for new wheels with the proper backspacing and bolt pattern.
