The Land Rover Defender V8 rim adapters are designed for bolt pattern conversion. In common practice, wheels with different bolt patterns cannot be installed correctly on your Defender V8 SVR. However, this can be easily solved by rim adapters. By using rim adapters, you can change the bolt pattern and center bore to add wheels that are not made for your car. Besides, a hub-centric rim 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. They would also 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 and exterior looks, then the Defender V8 rim adapters will be your ideal choice.
The Principle of Defender V8 Rim Adapters
The Defender V8 rim adapters (also called PCD adapters) allow you to fit wheels to your vehicle when the PCD doesn’t match. By using the rim adapters, you can build your own PCD conversion custom specification. For example, 5×120 to 5×114.3 adapter, the Defender V8 has a 5×120 bolt pattern structure. By putting a rim adapter on the Defender V8 that has a 5×120 bolt pattern on the hub side (that will fasten with the matching wheel nuts) and the wheel mounting side of the adapter will have matching provided studs on it in a 5×114.3 bolt pattern. This allows 5×114.3 aftermarket wheels to be attached to a 5×120 Land Rover Defender V8 wheel assembly. They can also be used to change the center bore of your Defender V8, 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 rim 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, 72.6mm to 66.1mm. By installing a wheel adapter on the 72.6mm size hub, you can mount a 66.1mm CB size aftermarket wheel. The center ring is machined to fit the existing wheel hub of your Defender V8 SVR, while the centric lip’s size is made to fit your new wheels for proper fastening.
How Can I Customize Land Rover Defender V8 Rim Adapters?
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 Defender V8 SVR rim adapters. The most important things we need to know are the thickness and your wheel’s bolt pattern (also called PCD). Measuring the wheel gap is the most basic beginning of determining the thickness of the Defender V8 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 wheels you attempt to add. With these data, we can build your custom rim adapters. 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 are also available to be customized. Besides, they are made with modern CNC machinery, precision to 0.02mm tolerance, ensuring that each BONOSS Defender V8 rim adapter fits snugly and securely, and is built to your exact specifications.
