Anybody running the STI 4/110 adapters?

Ive seen them mentioned a couple times. It seems to always come back to a width conversation.
Is anyone actually running them? Do they have steel inserts to keep the aluminum from wearing? Does it need them?

All the studs are screwed into the aluminium so no steel needed ?

Im really struggling with this so I guess I'll just throw it out there and see how it goes.

I need new tires. Im not fond of the 11's so I thought Id get down to a 4/110 to open up my options. I had pretty much decided on the adapters when I cam across a thread where they took the hubs off of an 09 Rancher to get to the 4/110. Then Baxter throws in that he did it with a 450R hub. Each have there own benefits and issues.

Adapters: There issue is width but I dont really have an issue with that.

Rancher hub: Direct fit but needs shimming on outside/ may have some fit issues with 9 inch rims

450R hub: Needs to be machined to fit the bearing, however gives you the best clearance for rims


To me the adapter is the easiest, and probably the cheapest. What if I end up driving four hours to a new place that has a width restriction though...

I dont care for the ITP rims that fit...or the tire options for the 11". I already have a set of 9" 4/110 rims with brand new tires.

So I bought a pair of used 450R hubs. They give you the best rim selection and keep it the narrower than the adapter. I got them in last night and they look like they are in good shape.

Ive found a machine shop that im going to talk to about the work. I'd like to take them my existing hub as well, I don't however have a socket big enough for the hub nut. As soon as I get this off I will take a couple pics and then send them to the machine shop

I put the new hubs on this weekend. 9 inch rims with 20x11 tires. I couldnt be more pleased. Its nice having tires that actually hook up well. I guess the only downside for some would be the width at 55". It doesnt affect me however.

Again i would like to thank Baxter for answering the multiple emails, and everyone else for answering my stupid questions

What are you planning on doing in the front to even it out? I imagine a 10inch front-rear width difference will almost give it a 3 wheeler feel. The front end should actually be wider than the rear

I've run 9" rears at a beach race. It handled great and did a full season cross country with a 44" front, 49" rear , Just had a "Eureka" moment on why I could get Big Rex to handle at them races and not at the ovals.

2008 TT-ReXX , 2003 400ex and 2014 CRF250r.

I love the 450R hubs on the rear. However the front does still push quite a bit. I need new front tires, however I do think I need to widen it. I will not use spacers. I havent looked into my options for widening the front yet.

You could flip the front rims to get about 1.5 inches more on each side. I believe the stock offset is 3.5+2 with the 2 inches being the outside of the rim in stock form. Maybe not ideal but it will help even the width out for now.
