8 to 10 adapters

Does anybody recommend a certain company who may be better than others?

American Force Wheels. There adaptors aren't the most flashy, but they're strong and well balanced. I've been running them for over 75k miles.

I read on here i think, that they are heavy...like 28 lbs. if i remember right. So i am wondering how the stock brakes will stop that force with 24" rims and a 34' fifth wheel behind it. I want them bad, just want to know if anyone knows of a brake upgrade or has had experiance with this. Just traded in a 3/4 ton Dodge for my first diesel.

Yeah, they're heavy. But don't make a huge difference in braking. It's not much different than going to a tire / wheel combo that's 28 lbs heavier. If you have a 05+ truck, you already have some awesome brakes from the factory but could upgrade to some slotted rotors. If you have an 04 or earlier and you're going with 24" rims, you now have the clearance to upgrade your brakes to larger diameter rotors. I don't know how good the factory brakes are on the 04 and earlier trucks, but I know you cam find that info here.
