Default 5x100 to 114.3 wheel adapter spacers

hey guys, looking for some wheel adapter spacers to change stud pattern from 5x100 to 114.3 so that i can have more choice with rims. does anyone know where you can get these with the hub centric ring, they are not safe without the ring are they? does anyone know of any place in australia that can make them?

Not necessarily. If they are the good ones that have the correct centre bore size and proper nuts etc. they should be fine. There are thousands of people who track with spacers on.

Its the dodgy ones that are just a metal plate which start snapping studs.

I wasn't advocating the use of spacers, simply pointing out that swapping to 114mm hubs will cost as much as 3 sets of new rims. (ask Tino how much it cost, and he already had the Brembo calipers, R180 etc)
