Post by Mikefrew » Thu Oct 17, 2019 6:29 pm

Does anyone have ant 4 x 4” to 4 x 100 wheel adapters for sale?

Depends on your existing wheel offset & what size muddies your using.

Just get the 20mm ones & buy muddies to fit once you know the size required,it really depends on how far you want your wheels to stick out :thumbsup: if your reliant axle is standard then you should be OK with 20mm I've had trikes with standard width reliant axles & no spacers or adaptors & they were plenty wide enough.
