Spacer? You would need an adapter or have the wheel recentered....

We are assuming you already did an axle swap correct?

Negative, stock axles. I used a spacer/adapter on my CUCV to use the wheels/tires now I want to do the same thing on one of my 715s and I plan use a set on a M37 as well, once I find the correct adapters/spacer for both, if such a thing is available.

I found a company advertised in a sport/custom truck magazine that claimed they could make custom adapters
I spoke to a gentleman from the company
He spoke as if it wouldn’t be a problem
I went out a began to measure and discovered the hub center on the rims I wanted to use were a little to smalll
Adapter our not they wouldn’t fit on hub
My 715 is on the back burner right now
But I completed another Jeep that I had the same problem
I was able to have a machine shop remove a few thousandths and everything is golden
If I can find that manufacture’s info
I will send it

Thanks, I had hoped there was a ready made adapter out there like I found for the CUCV!

Boss I did a quick google search
Man the heavy truck type adapters are pricey
I was looking at the 8 lug to 10 lug adapters
They were a couple hundred dollars a piece!
If you add the custom word to the order it will probably get to the point it makes no sense
I ran adapters on Jeep TJs and XJs
They were only $120 a pair

A set of four for my CUCV was a little over $200! It is rated at 1.25 tons like the M 715, is it just a demand issue on cost and availability?
