    Hub Adaptors.

    Are running hub adaptors safe for high performance cars? I'm talking about using them for high speed and cornering like track work, obviously normal everyday driving would be ok. A lot of people run these to get a set of wheels to fit their car that wouldn't otherwise, so I'm keen to know how safe they are when pushed to the limit.

    Hubcentric ones are supposed to be the best. I've heard reports of non-hubcentric one causing some nasty-ass wheel wobble at higher speeds. One bloke told me it felt like he only had one wheel nut in!

    I know that larger spacers will munch through bearings etc. in the same way majoly dished wheel will because the bulk of the weight sits further from the hub (levers and all that). Appart from that I don;t really know much about the safety aspect of them...
