    any other sources for centers besides usa6x6 or stazworks?

    i keep seeing pressed centers, and unpressed centers, whats the difference? i hear that the pressed centers are stronger.

    what kind of inserts should i get? pvc rubber steel cut down stock or what?

    what about valve stems? can i run rubber stems or do i need steel?

    thanks in advance.

    Ryan I have the pressed centers from USA 6x6, they are good to go, I guess a few people had problems with the flat inserts warping or bending. Also my rims still have the rubber stems, they work fine, as far as inserts I use the mag run flats, PVC would be nice but just a little to expensive for me

    exactly how I feel and what I run. If you are just buying the centers, USA 6X6 is ok to deal with. I just dont think I would even have them weld them up for me. I ended up doing it myself and dont have much runout.

    With 38.5x16x16.5 I cant feel anything up to 40 mph. Never had it on the freeway so I couldnt tell you that part. Besides I also have a homemade rear dshaft so that could give me vibes.

    I found a 20' stick of pipe for the pvc inserts.....in Texas!! We were going to get a stick and take some orders and cut it on our bandsaw at the shop. The pvc was like $600!! If I can get my hands on some close by I will make some.

    hell, the way the phone rep talked, we could get it cut to the exact length, or close enough to face off in the mill at work. so we wouldnt have to buy a whole stick...or maybe get the whole stick cut into those lengths.

    if the call comes through, ill post up exacts.
