Works Bell Standard Hubs

Our hub adapters were designed utilizing the latest data for many late model and early model vehicle applications. Fitment data, strength, and safety were all taken into account to produce a hub adapter that would be comparable to the OEM design.

Everything from replicating OEM quality fasteners to ensure a secure fit, to designing the hubs to withstand impact in the event of an accident, our Works Bell Universal Hub Adapters are created with the drivers' safety in mind. These hub adapters are produced using an aluminum die-casting manufacturing method based on the OEM hub design.

These hub adapters support most aftermarket steering wheels and can be used both with steering wheels with a "Momo bolt pattern" or "Nardi bolt pattern".
