hub centric wheel adapters?
 
After reading a lot about spacers here, I asked a guy at a local shop about getting 1 inch spacers put on my Grand Cherokee. His response was that I need "hub centric wheel adapters", not spacers. Does this make any sense?

Hub centric rings are what is uses when the hub size is not the exact fit for your bolt pattern. To center up the lugs. Spacers are to push out the wheel from the HUB.

There is a hub centric spacer, not just for getting the right bolt pattern either. Standard 5 on 5 hub centric spacers can be found all over. Hub centric simply means that they are machined from the hub ring out for a very tight, very exact fit that prevents wheel wobble and premature bearing wear. Don't buy the high end name brands, check out ebay first for "5x5 hub centric spacers" and you'll see a bunch of high quality machined aluminum spacers (just check user feedback). I came from the Wrangler community for the last 10 years, and am very familiar with using them. For daily driving, they're okay, I really don't agree with using them much in rock-crawling or high-horsepower applications, but for a regular ol' GC, they should work fine.

5x5 bolt pattern is the same as wrangler, but you might ask about the hub ring fit itself and how universal it is for Wrangler/GC. I'm new to this GC thing, so I'm still getting acquainted.

Yes. Motorsport Tech makes custom parts and can make a wheel spacer with bolt pattern adapter and hub ring (for the wheel you want to use) on the veh you want to use it on. All three items in one unit or bolt pattern adapter/spacer in one unit, or hub ring/spacer in one unit. Your choice.
