Just got my 23 mm adapters for the 5-110 to 5-114.3 mm conversion. Had to pay $43 CDN for HST taxes but was not charged any duty at the border probably because they were manufactured in the USA (free trade agreement).
I am very pleased with the workmanship and the finish.
Fit to the TSW wheel was excellent:
Fitment to the hub was not good as Shabby had noted with his adapters 2 years ago. A knife blade could easily be inserted all the way around as the adapter was riding on a small shoulder. Gap was estimated to be about 1.5 mm. See photo of blade in between adapter and hub:
Anti-seize paste that I applied to the hub did not transfer to adapter showing that no contact was made. See photo below:
Looks like I will have to get the adapters machined to create a larger chamfer similar to what Shabby had to do and similar to the OEM wheels as shown in the photos. Will most likely go to a large chamfer similar to the OEM wheels:
Looks like Motorsport Tech did not listen to Shabby 2 years ago. A greater amount of chamfer is required.
