    They have too much backspacing on them (the rims). When you turn your front wheels you will have all sorts of contact.

    h1 rims = 7" b.s.

    most trucks run 4" ish b.s.

    swap in some DRW axles or have them recentered...recentering is prolly our best choice...or just get a new set of wheels...

    USA 6X6 sells the centers. You cut the old ones out and weld in the new ones.
