    i bought a set of swapmers and they are on hummer beadlock rims, i like the beadlock and runflats and would like to run them on my truck but the back spacing is crazy, the tires are in the wheel wells and i have 38.5/16/16.5 swampers on it, i was wondering if i could do something to make them stick out more?

    Most people who run hummer beadlocks get them recentered so they don't have enormous stock backspace/forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Or you could flip the rims around and run them backwards. I guess it works, but the lug seats are all wrong so I doubt it's safe. They would stick out like crazy too, but I suppose it would work. There are other ways to make them work without recentering, but it involves lots of parts swapping to get the axles wider.
