interesting witner setup...?

So i know this is kinda of a interesting question about a winter setup. I have a set of volk ce28 wheels that are 18 x 9 with a 35 offset. I have found these adapters that should correct the bolt pattern from 5x120 to 5x114.3. I have dunlop 3d's mounted on these wheels with 255/35/18 on all four. Whats everyone's opinion's on doing this? here is the link for the adapters

Well if it fits and you have clearance it'll work

For all that hassle, personally, I'd just mount blizzaks or wintersports on OEM 18s. You won't have as good deep snow handling but otherwise you'll maintain better rear end control.

It's totally do-able. The wider than usual front tire will hamper you slightly in deep snow, but it would certainly run ok on the car.
