    Higher,

    They fit over your wheel hub to allow you to locate your wheels plus makes it easier to position your wheels to recieve the wheel bolts.

    ahh.. hub adaptors...i know what you mean now..

    measure your existing hub and the bore on your wheels and take an ebay tour.. or get a local machine shop to make some up for you..

    if the centre bore of the wheels is bigger than the ars bore, then there could be a bit of vibration, the spigot rings will stop it by centering the wheel to the hub as without them the wheel could be slightly off.

    Make sure you meausure the size of the wheel opening which fits over the hub, i had mine fitted on saturday and have completly stopped all vibrations.

    Try roadhouse vie e-bay, there technical department will talk you through where and what to meausure, call them when you have a wheel off as it's easier for them to direct you where to meausure.

    Hope this helps.
