Yah I'd rather have wheels for sure. Wide wheels look better anyways. And that's...$240.

I've run adapters on my S10 and Ranger. Just be sure to check them a few miles after you install them. Then again at, say, 1000 miles.

My S10 was lowered on WS6 wheels for a year with no problems(2.5" thick). I beat on the truck a lot too. Then I had adapters on my Ranger running Cherokee wheels and didn't have any problems either(1.25" thick).

I would use them again

I run 1.25 thick adapters to fit my 17's on my truck because they were fwd rims and wouldnt clear the hub without them.

I get vibrations at around 60 but once i get over that Im pretty smooth once the tires warm up. Other than that They are fine.

hub centric rings

so i ran across these today while i was shoppin and figured they might help you out with your bad vibes (sorry for the implicit pun). They are very useful it seems and cheap too. You could probably mill some yourself if you wanted to save more cash...
