how is this accomplished and how much am i looking at spending unless i can do it myself ?
You just have to ignor the bickering.
Or send me a PM and I will tell you its not that costly really the kit is 1100.00 dynatrack since it uses 1/2 ton parts you dont need the hole kit (calipers mainly) that brings the kit down to 800.00.
what rims do you use?
do the 6 lugs clear the 60 warn hubs or do you have to bore out the rims?
FOr some reson some after market rims have a 4.180 to 4.190 center hole, you cant use the stock wheel or steal wheel as the center on the hubs and have the smaller opening
so without boring you cannot use the factory ralleys anyway?
and you lose the hubcentric and rely on lugcentric.
which rims did you use?
did you find a selection to choose from?
We have yet to find after market rims that are not lugcentric other than steel ones. Since if you are going to a d60 and 14 bolt you have most likely out grown the stock steel wheels any way.
By the way the OEM wheels on my 01 burban are lugcentrice.
What do yo mean by "lugcentric" vs "hubcentric"?
some wheels (I believe most OEM) use a machined lip on the hub and a matching diameter centre to help locate the wheel.
cheaper aftermarket wheels oversize the centre hole and rely on the lugs to locate the wheel.
for Ford and Dodge 5 lug applications on cars they shared lug pattern but had differing hub size so aftermarket wheels would use the larger size to allow boltup on either make.
the Barts I had where lug centric but the Ford OEM Accuride wheels I use now are hubceentric.
small point but worth thinking about for those that were hoping to run factory Ralley wheels for the ultimate sleeper look
I thought it might be something like that. It has been so long since I ran factory wheels, I didn't know. You know, I just run those cheap Centerlines.
LOL, never heard 'cheap' and 'Centerline' used in a sentence before.
are they lugcentric then? I would have guessed they would be hub for that big bank
The reason the aftermarket whels have the big center hole is because toyota uses the same pattern and there front hubs are huge. Its always cheaper to make them fit both then make one for chevy and one for toyota.
My Centerlines are lug centric. At least, that is what I am assuming. The don't catch on anything on the drums and the lug holes have the angles that "center" the wheel. I was just giving you a hard time about your "cheap aftermarket" comment! LOL
WHat about the cheap wheel that are OEM on my 2001 burban MJ? Why if letting the lugs center is so bad did GM sell this and any other 2500 truck for 2001 and 2002 this way.
Someone giving MJ a hard time? Thats a new one LOL /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
so now you want me to explain why chev makes junk?
that is too big an answer for me to waste time typing for you.
you will have to learn that on your own.
