Default 8 to 10 lug adaptor

Has anyone been successful in converting an 8 lug ( 86 f250 rat rod) to accept a 10 lug tractor trailer wheel? I need to change my 4:10 rear end ratio and this would seem to be the best/cheapest?/coolest solution. The billet adaptors are very pricey.

Why? Have you priced 22.5 tires lately? A cheap import is over $300. Don't think you'd be saving any money.............

The people who have done it successfully purchased the pricey adaptors, the pricey wheels and the pricey tires. Not sure what you're asking here.

If it was cheap and easy everyone would do it...
