I don't like the idea much, but they seem pretty common.

I've never heard of "wheel adapters." What are they?

Don't believe everything you think

In this case, I believe we're talking about spacers that allow you to use wheels on your car that have the wrong offset, but they can also be more elaborate things that look like hubs.
