1 Ton Wheel Adapters

I am converting my 94 from SRW to DRW, bought 2 sets of front adapters from guys on the forum and neither will bolt-on. The recess machined in the inside of the adapter is approx 1/8" too small diameter (4.600"). It doesn't match the wheel center hole size like the outside. The outside where the wheel bolts on is the correct size (4.77"). I wonder if it would be safe if I put them in the lathe and machined the recess out to fit?

Why would it matter WHO puts them in a lathe and opens them up?
If you send them back and they open them up, or you find a machine shop to open them up, OR like you said you open them up. The end result is all the same. But I would never run spacers to run dually wheels, I would change to the dually hubs.

I didn't get my point across. They are the Dodge factory cast iron front adapters, not some aftermarket units. Looks like there was a change in 2000. Possibly this was the difference?

I don't what that would hurt...you're only talking about 1/32nd all the way around. Just make sure you only take off what is needed and no more. My front spacers have to be gently persuaded to come off......

I went ahead and machined the spacers to fit. Went for a 20 mile drive yesterday and no wobble or shake. Removed the wheels and re-torqued the nuts. May do it again after about 100 miles or so just to be safe.
