Default Jconcepts tribute hex replacement

So I, hopefully?, am not alone but the tribute wheels have fallen off a time or two. While entertaining it has left a few of the hex adapters chewed out and while they still work at the moment I know that won't last. I'm curious what people have done to replace them. I found these on ebay but they dont mention the bolt pattern for the wheel so while I think they'd be perfect I dont know if it's worth the chance.

The bolt pattern for the Tribute wheels is a much larger circle than SLW hubs (and similar Chinese hubs). Jconcepts makes aluminum hubs but only in the +25mm size, if you are using the smaller offset hubs then I'm not sure what other options are out there.

I put the jconcepts 25mm aluminum hex adapters on my Tribute wheels. Haven't had a problem since. I put blue loctite on the axle threads so the wheel nut doesn't fly off.

I just saw these from RC4WD... These wheels with aluminum hexes are $10 more than what just the aluminum hex adapters from JConcepts cost. If i didnt already buy a pair of the aluminum adapters i would probably have just done the wheels from RC4WD!

Sorry to revive an old post but we have worked out a 3d print for the hex adatpers since no aftermarket solutions are available.

I'm testing them now and once a final fitment is done the file will be posted publicly for everyone to use

Very cool! I'm still waiting for my Tributes to arrive but I assume i'll have similar issues, and the aluminum adapters Jconcepts sells are pricey ($50 for all 4 wheels.)

I don't have a 3D printer so i may have to buy from you (if you are making selling any) once i get my wheels.

You won't have any issues with the aluminum adapters. I bought them for my truck and I've had zero. You are right in that $50 for four is a little pricey. I do hope that these 3D printed adapters are more durable than the OEM plastic adapters that come with the Tributes as they are like soft butter.
