All,
I've heard it both ways about spacers and adapters being better. A fellow who races and owns an automotive shop does not like the adapters. He advocates spacers with longer wheel studs. The...

bluert,

That is a good point about the tape. Actually, it comes off very easily with freeze mist. The freeze mist shrinks the adhesive enough to break it loose. I believe I bought the bezels on...
