    The discs are 3/16". You'll loose 3/16" of thread engagement, on the studs, so "IF" they're marginal without the adapters I wouldn't do it without swapping out slightly longer studs. The rule of thumb is 1-1/2 times (or more) the thread diameter of engagement. (1/2" stud should have 3/4" length of engagement "minimum").

    Thanks Steve, good information for anyone looking to use the adapters to be sure they understand.

    I'm looking for 14x6 steel wheels to use with dog dishes.... i have seen the reference for back spacing like 3 7/16 etc. On a 72 skylark/GS convertible with rear stock drums and Right Stuff disc brake conversion, what back space would be a) stock and b) acceptable other backspacing options that will work with my set up? Thank you!
