Question about Wheels Mfg BB30 adapters

I am planning on installing Shimano cranks on a BB30 frame. I bought some of the Wheels adapters off ebay. They were advertised as:


"WHEELS MANUFACTURING BB30 TO SHIMANO 24MM BOTTOM BRACKET ADAPTER REDUCER KIT"

The part I got says "for SRAM/Truvativ" Looking at Wheels website they make two versions:

Wheels Mfg BB30 Adapters


It says Shimano is 24mm and SRAM is 22/24mm. So my question before I open this pacakge is will they work with Shimano? Does 22/24 mean it will work with 22mm or 24mm or is it tapered ?

They won't work with a Shimano crank which has a 24 mm constant diameter spindle The Truvativ spindle is 24 mm then steps down to 22 mm and the shoulder acts to locate the spindle laterally. The two types are incompatible so you must get the correct one for your crank.
