I don't have an answer specific to your question, but the advice I can give is don't use adapters or spacers between the wheels and hub, it throws off the center load carrying of the wheel bearing and will destroy the bearings. Click below on 'Related questions' there is a thread a couple years old that has some information and a lot of animosity to boot.
