What do LC300 wheel adapters do? How to add LC200 wheels on LC300 by wheel adapters? As Toyota Enterprise announced that the new generation Land Cruiser 300 series will be released in August, many 200 Series owners who intend to buy the 300 Series are concerned about one question: Can I install LC200 5×150 wheels on the new LC300? However, this problem can be easily solved by LC300 wheel adapters. An LC300 wheel adapter allows you to fit wheels to your vehicle when the PCD doesn’t match.
By using the wheel adapters, you can build your own PCD conversion custom specification. For example, the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series uses Toyota Land Cruiser 200 Series wheels. The LC300 has a 6×139.7 bolt pattern. By putting a wheel adapter on the LC300 that has a 6×139.7 bolt pattern on the hub side (that will fasten with the matching lug nuts) and the wheel mounting side of the adapter will have matching lug studs on it in a 5×150 bolt pattern. This allows 5×150 LC200 wheels to be attached to the Land Cruiser 300 Series safely.
Do I Need LC300 Wheel Adapters for Converting Center Bore?
These LC300 Wheel adapters can also be used to change the center bore diameter, making it possible for you to fit wheels with a different center bore to your vehicle. If you are trying to fit the LC200 wheels to the hub of LC300, then you need to use wheel adapters. Due to the larger center diameter of the wheel, there will be a certain gap between the hub and the wheel’s mounting plate. Hub centric wheel adapters are designed to fill this gap, making a snug connection between wheel and vehicle hub. You can also custom the center diameter size, for example, 106mm to 110mm. By installing a wheel adapter on the 106mm size hub, you can add a 110mm CB size LC200 wheel. The center ring is machined to fit the existing hub assembly of your vehicle, while the other side is made to fit your new wheels and the wheels are bolted onto the adapter with proper fastening.
Can I Change Offset Without Changing Wheels?
Yes. By using LC300 wheel adapters with various thicknesses allow you to change the offset of your wheels quickly and easily. When the wheel mounting plate is closer to the outside, this is called a positive offset. An excessive positive offset will cause the inner edge of your rims and tires to rub against the suspension components when the vehicle takes a U-turn. It can also negatively affect your car’s handling, making it potentially dangerous to drive. In this type of situation, custom offset wheel adapters are useful to firmly fit in new rims that normally are not adjustable. They can set the wheel forward and flush the fender line, preventing your wheels from hitting the control arms and other suspension components. Through this function, they can give your car an excellent look as well. This saves the cost of buying a set of new custom aftermarket wheels.
How to Buy LC300 Wheel Adapters?
The most important things you need are thickness and your vehicle’s bolt pattern (also called PCD). Measuring the wheel gap is the most basic beginning of determining the thickness of the LC300 wheel adapters. Too thick, your tire may impact the fender. Too thin, the spacer might not be enough. The wheel gap is the amount of space between the inner fender lip and the outside edge of your wheel tires or rims. It will help you find the proper thickness. The other crucial thing is the bolt pattern. If you would like to convert the bolt pattern, then you need to figure out both the bolt pattern of the factory hub assembly of your LC300 and the bolt pattern of the wheels you attempt to add.
