    you all know the situation...now what is the cheapest/easiest/best rooute to go?
    1....do an 8 lug conversion on my 10 bolt? (can't afford a d60 now)

    2...do a 6 lug conversion on my 14 bolt?

    3...run two different wheel sizes?

    i can't afford new tires so i'll be forced to use my 15" tires for atleast another 6 months to a year.
    i'm considering buying 2 15x10 8 lug steel wheels for now.
    this is my last chore then i can install my 14 bolt..



    when all else fails..............HIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![​IMG]

    Do the 8 lug on the 10 bolt. It only cost me about 150 to do it and it was easy. I don't know about your rig but mine has no room for 2 spare[​IMG] and the 6 lug conversion on a 14bolt is expensive. Then when you get you D60 are you gonna convert that to 6lug also?

    Is there any way to get a wheel spacer/adapter that would convert an 8-lug 14b to a 6-lug wheel pattern?? I had this thought today but am not sure whether this would work. Anybody have any ideas?

    I think someone makes them but they are pricey and your wheels would be that much further out.

    centre hole is different size and 6 lugs suck so just step up with the real trucks
