Mostly, the Nissan 400Z Proto wheel adapters would create the necessary distance on the inner portion of the wheel for the clearance issues of wheel rims, big brakes, tie rods, and other suspension components. If you plan to keep the current wheels while enhancing the handling performance or exterior looks, then wheel adapters will be your ideal choice. In addition, the 400Z Proto wheel adapters can change the bolt pattern and center bore to allow you to mount wheels that are not made for your car. If you intend to convert PCD/CB for fitting the wheels, then wheel adapters will be your instant and effective solution. Moreover, a hub-centric wheel adapter can transform a lug-centric wheel (one that centers by fastening the wheel lugs rather than a hub-specific mounting surface) into a hub-centric wheel, reducing the high-speed vibration. Done properly, your modifications will be beneficial.
What Do Nissan 400Z Proto Adapters Do?
The 400Z adapters (also called conversion spacers) allow 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, 5×114.3 to 5×120 adapters, the 400Z Proto has a 5×114.3 bolt pattern structure. By putting a wheel adapter on the 400Z that has a 5×4.5″ 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 provided studs on it in a 5×120 bolt pattern. This allows 5×120 aftermarket wheels to be attached to a 5×114.3 Nissan 400Z Proto wheel assembly. They can also be used to change the center bore of your 400Z Proto, which provides the same function as the conversion hub-centric rings.
Most aftermarket wheels are lug-centric designs because this allows manufacturers to make larger center bore diameter wheels that can fit a wider range of vehicles. Due to the larger center diameter of the wheel, there is a certain gap between the center hub and the wheel. 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, 72.5mm to 66.1mm. By installing a wheel adapter on the 66.1mm size hub, you can mount a 72.5mm CB size aftermarket wheel. The center ring is machined to fit the existing wheel hub of your 400Z Proto, while the centric lip’s size is made to fit your new wheels for proper fastening.
Can I Customize Nissan 400Z Proto Wheel Adapters?
Yes. With the combination of the independent factory, advanced production techniques, autonomous design, and abundant actual measuring data, BONOSS produces and guarantees superior and high-performance custom 400Z Proto wheel adapters. The most important things we need to know 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 400Z Proto wheel adapters. 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 of your 400Z Proto and the bolt pattern of the wheels you attempt to add. We also provide non-normal thickness’s customized service, completed only in 1-3 days, 3mm-160mm thick, forged 6061-T6 (Tensile Strength≥310Mpa) or 7075-T6 (Tensile Strength≥572Mpa) Aluminum material is available, OEM/ODM is available. The color and decorative pattern of your 400Z Proto wheel adapters are also available to be customized. Besides, they are made with modern CNC machinery, precision to 0.02mm tolerance, ensuring that each wheel adapter fits snugly and securely, and is built to your exact specifications.
