    Yeah, I've had my eye on those adapters for a while... its good to see they're off backorder again. Actually, I was planning on using 'em if the OEM Machs don't quite fit with the 0.25" spacer. I've mentioned 'em to folks doing the Bullitt wheel swap (since they are the right offset), but almost everyone said that the fact that they're made from CAST rather than BILLET would make them nervous... I say as long as you're not using them in a high performance situation (i.e. high rwhp, or high lateral g) then they're probably just fine for the average cruiser.

    I did do a search of ebay for wheel spacers and did find there are plenty of folks selling custom made billet adapters. Sure, they're twice the money of the TDPerfomance ones, but for safety sake it may be worth it...

    Gotta love that big brown truck. I got my Ford Mach1 wheels, from DPM INC 734 459 0130. They're the same company that's posted above. The wheels are brand new still in the Ford Racing boxes. As for spacers, I am going to need a 1". I put the wheels on, no tires yet, and they hit the front springs. I am going to see if I can find some spacers at the Fun Ford Weekend in VA this Sunday. If I can't find them there, then I'll order the set from Summit.

    I think it'll look great! :spot:

    Just make sure you paint your brake drums before the install.

    Wish I could say that I did. I'm hoping to have tires mounted within the next 2 weeks.

    Damn, I wondered why this thread title looked familiar... I still haven't gotten mine, but I've started saving money and I'll definitely be getting 'em from www.karkraft.com . $899 w/tires ain't bad...
