You'll never notice the offset. Granted your diff bearings will see a higher side load but handling will not suffer.

16 X 6 rim and tyre ... have you taken into consideration how much the two will weigh compared to the stock setup ? Weight ( inertia ) will kill acceleration more than you think




What do you mean by " two part adapter " ?
