    anyone running hmmwv/h-1 wheels on a k-5? i got to thinking this might be feasable. i know the offset is way different, but how much? and i recall in a magazine they tried it on a k-5 and used spacers, anyone recall? if someone is running these wheels could i see a pic? or if anyone has any idea how to make it work?

    Need bud-wheel style front hubs and a wide rear axle WMS or spacers.
    Several folks on the board are running H1 wheels so I'm sure they will post up some pic's for Ya".

    Use DRW hubs or have the wheels recentered is what most people do.

    Usa6x6 has the pressed centers.

    3 of the 6 trucks that went to tellico last weekend had recentered H1's

    Here's some pics
    Clicky

    If you want to recenter them you mark where the top half meets the bottom, as illustrated, then cut that out.
    Or use drw hubs on a d60 and 14bff or d70.

    As everyone said, you're most feasable options are to swap in dually axles, or have the wheels recentered with less back spacing. Wheel spacers that are that big are very expensive.

    You can get the centers for most any lug pattern, so you wouldn't have to buy 1 tons, but would be a good time to do it...
