How bad are wheel adapters? Would autocrossing a car with wheel adapters be unsafe?

I can't find any good wheels, with the correct bolt pattern

i've never heard anything good about wheel adapters, however, my only experience with them were on old muscle cars. my dads' z28 lost a wheel on the highway due to a faulty wheel adapter.

We don't recommend them because it's an additional component that adds weight and it's an unnecessary part that can fail.

During race and/or autocross a lot of stress is placed on the wheels and studs. If the adapter is not properly made, the studs may fatigue and fail so not the best choice for safety.
