thats gonna be a hard one since your only moving the lug rufly .19 inches out so about 2/10 of a inch, might be able to elongate the lug holes in the rim and get away with that and just run a normal spacer or a different hub on the 14 bolt

Yes they do. I believe they make them both ways, so, you could either stick with the 8 on 170 all the way around, or switch to 8 on 6.5 all the way around. Search around on Ebay, they have everything, even though most stuff is rediculously overpriced.

Alaskan, it really isnt that hard of an adaptor to make, since both patterns are an 8 lug pattern, you would have the smaller diameter bolt circle, with 45º between each wheel stud, then you take the larger diamter bolt circle and put the holes for the stock wheel studs to stick through 22.5º off from the smaller bolt circle. It's kind of hard to explain with words, a lot easier with a picture.
