where can i get steel bolt pattern adpters??

Hi, a friend of mine has a 4x4 converted 1996 e350, he has lost on rear wheel twice, the bolt cut of and the wheel goes away with the aluminium spacer/adpter attached to it, i have a quigley van that i think has steel adpaters on the rear axle and i havent had any issues.
We think that the soft aluminium could be the issue but i havent been avle to find steel adapter, could anyone give me any advice or direct me to a shop that sells them?

Thnaks, Francisco.

I have a set of aluminum adapters from these guys, no issues in many years of use.
It sounds like the studs/bolts on your friends rig are getting over torqued and stretched or hes not using the proper grade.

Thanks, he had dorman 610303 bolts, acording to amazon they are 8.8 grade is that correct?
We found that only 2 of the 8 bolts where cuted off, the rest was bended and with no stripped threads, they did had lock tite on them, the spacers where cheap soft aluminium.

Looks like he also needs a wheel hub, i thought he had a dana 70 ff but the doors sticker reads axle code 39, i found a table that tells me that its a sterling 10.25, if someone could help me with the wheel hub for that please?

Thanks again.

Ya, its important to use at the minimum a 6061 grade aluminum for these types of spacers on our heavy rigs. Wheel adapter uses a 6061-T6 grade billet aluminum for their spacers. Think grade 8 is a bit light for wheel stud use on heavy rigs, might be part of the problem? Im having a hard time finding definitive info on what grade wheel studs should be used.

Found this too for comparison

Wheeladapters.com seems to use Timkin steel for anything 1ton, not ally. I just bought a set from them, replaced my Quigly Ally spacers with adapters since I changed bolt the pattern. Wheeladapters.com is great quality, I was absolutely amazed at the quality for the price they charged. Adapter, Studs (grade 10), Nuts are all highest quality.

Thanks, ill go with them, but it looks like the wheel hubs are damaged beyond repair from the event, where can i get them? i have been looking at summit and ebay.
Im from Chile so sourcing them is not so easy for me.

https://www.rockauto.com/ Is a good source for parts, also many options OEM vs aftermarket. I recently got hubs, brakes, rotors, wheel studs from them. Very quick shipping and they dont lie about whats in stock vs needs to be ordered like all the online ford places.
