Hank’s Dual Wheel Adapters

UPDATE: I have not heard from Hank in a while. Unless I hear otherwise, I don’t believe he’s got these for sale. This is informational only at this point.

Hank created these at his shop. He writes, “Thought I would show everyone my dual wheel adapters that I made at our shop. I got the dimensions from a friend that had a pair and sold them. They fit the front and rear and they have right and left thread lug nuts.May not be original but they are twice as strong, will do the job and don’t look half bad.”

    I worked as toolmaker for 20 years, can tell a real nice job. However your picture shows the standard tire reversed when mounted. The original hickeys adapters were not. I have seen others mounted this way, wondering if the length is different or the individual does not know. Some examples seen have real dually wheels and dana 70 axles for the heavy duty applications and may be mistaken for reversed rims. Are you selling any and what price.

    Is Hank selling these, and if so, how can I buy a set? Duals would look real sweet on the rear of my FC-170

    Hank’s never mentioned to me that he was making these. I’ve not heard from him since he sent these examples.

    I really didn’t get much response when I sent in those pictures. I was hoping for a good response so I could sell 20 sets. I sold the only extra set I had. I should have looked more often to see if there was anymore interest in the adapters.
    It does make a difference the way you mount the out side wheel because of the back spacing.

    There are several parts dealers who might be interested in buying a couple pairs. We might be able to generate an interest in 20 sets. If that’s of interest, drop me an email and we can chat about it (

    Hi all,

    I have not heard from Hank in a while. Unless I hear otherwise, I don’t believe he’s got these for sale. This is informational only at this point. If he does offer some for sale, I’ll send everyone an email.

    I haven’t heard much from Hank lately. I don’t know if he’s still interested in making more sets or not. I’ll check with him when I get a chance and see.

    Hi William,

    I’ve got no answer for you at the moment. I haven’t seen a set of any type of adapters for sale in the last few months.

    Hi Sandy,

    I haven’t heard back from Hank in several years, so I doubt he will respond.
