    I think the adapters fit over your existing lugs.

    Another good source for wheel adapters is the company which originated adapters for Corvette wheel upgrades...Vette Brakes and Products.

    Ive got the adaptors and it seems my lugs seem short,maybe im wrong but i dont think there's enough threads for a lug nuts.I'll try again and check it out,its been a while since ive tried.
