    Im getting pretty close to swapping out my 10B's to 14BFF and D-44. I've searched and read some posts about using 8-6 lug adapters and 6 lug wheels.

    However, when I started doing some measuring, I found that the center hole in the spare rallye wheel measured 3.5" in diameter. Most of the posts state that the hubs on the 14BFF must be turned down to 4 5/16" to get 6 lug wheels to fit.

    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gifAm I missing something here? A 3.5" center hole won't fit over a 4 5/16" hub.

    I happen to like the look of the stock rallye wheels, and that's the only reason I'd even think of doing the spacers.

    What 6 lug wheels are you guys using on adapter/spacers? Definitely can't be the rallyes.

    Otherwise I guess I'll have to go the 15x8x8 route from summit or someone else.

    Any input would be cool and pics even cooler. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    When you convert the 14bFF to 6-lug, the stock Rally's won't fit. You need to use Toyota/Nissan/Isuzu or aftermarket wheels as they have a larger center hole.

    Maybe you can have the stock Rallies cut out to the larger size? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Ditch the Ralleys. The stock center cap won't fit over the 14FF hub either. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
