Can you stack wheel adapters?

I was thinking I wanted to run some sweet Semi wheels. I was going to get some 5 to 8 lug adapters then 8 to 10 lug adapters.. can that be done safely? wheelin' the **** out of it as usual.

Sick eh? Maybe on the back if i keep the 5 on 4.5, i can get an adapter to 5 on 5.5 to match the front then get the 8 and 10 lug adapters to go on top of that one























.... I think I need some sleep...

i would think you would put too much strain on the lug bolts and *snap* your sitting on the freeway with your tires in another zip code. it would just be worth your time to get 8 lug axles. you could probably have some made from a local shop to fit your set up

20s are lame, everyone with huge military tires are running 20s.

54s you mean?

i wonder do they sell the 54" bogger in a 15" rim if so that would be baddass looking probably too much rubber to rim ratio
