their only option is to spin them on the car, which is ok. it just seems odd with a million out there and no adaptors left... supply and demand i guess.

Here's something I've done before, it's time consuming for you....but it will get the job done.

Take your drum off the car, and bolt up the wheel (label all wheels/ or drums so they go back where they started). You'll have to remove the inner wheel bearing from the front wheels, and clean up the drums really well. No shop will put them on their balancer if you bring em' down all greasy.
From there, they can chuck up the wheel/ drum combo on the balancer, and you get a perfectly balanced wheel.
