Lug Pattern

I was wondering if it was a bad idea to do wheel spacers that take wheels from 5 on 4.5 to 5 on 5.5 lug pattern. Any help?

Thanks.

Why are you doing this? Only reason I would is because I already had the 5.5 wheels and you needed the spacers.

I'm just wondering if this would be an advantage or worse.

The 5.5 pattern is stronger IMHO and Jeep should have kept it. But by going to an adapter you still have the 4.5 hubs and 5.5 wheels. I'd think the adapter/wheel interface would be stronger but overall everything is the same as the hub/adapter is 4.5.
