Good stuff Tony.
I like the idea of spacers/adapters.  Does anybody know anything about bearing loads caused by the increased width?
The stock wheels have an offset of about 1 inch so that would mean a 2 inch offset in any new wheels or close to maintain the same footprint.
I don't know if the engineers were real concerned about offsets and bearing loads, but I would assume they were.  This may increase the bearing loads considerable.  On the other hand, the loads are pretty light considering the JH weight, about 550 lbs per wheel. 
Another good reason to find out where the rotors and rear axel came from.
I agree about the JH wheels.  Pretty nice.  I am going to have mine powder blasted and then who knows what.  Any ideas?
Thanks
