    the ads for them are all over ebay at really great prices...
    how do they look on gen 2 trucks... do they have a weird offset.... are they metric? do they work?
    35 bfgs and wheels for 600 or so (before shipping...which adds 175-200)sounds like a great deal

    As far as I know the hubs on our trucks will not fit through those rims.

    I have no idea about the lug pattern, it should be the same though, the H2 uses a 14SF in the rear.

    Then again I could be wrong, just found this; Ebay

    4" hub w/ 8 on 6.5"

    The specs on the H2 Wheels are:

    <ul type="square">
    *Wheel Size, 17 x 8.5
    *8 Lug on 6.5" Bolt Pattern
    *Back Spacing, 5-9/16"
    *Wheel Offset, +20mm (Positive Offset)
    *Hub-Hole Diameter, Aprox 4-5/8"
    [/list]


    By the looks of the trucks that have them installed, the extra inch (or so) of offset doesn't appear to be a problem. Anyone have any comments??


    I've seen a bunch of these sell with tires (315/70r17 BFG AT's) for under $500 /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif.

    If these will work then I'll buy a set and toss them on! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I asked this on another forum and was told that you had to open up the holes 1/4 inch or less and they'll fit. I am very interested in doing this, so any further info is appreciated.

    If you clean the rust off a 14 bolt ff hub they will fit with no modifications. The hole is for 3/4 ton GM's, so they fit like any other factory wheel on a 3/4 ton GM. I had my ford dana 60 front hubs turned down to match the 14 bolt OD, and now they work good on my ford axle too. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Have you got drums or disks on the 14bff? I remember hearing somewhere that the H2 rims don't clear the drums. Any idea if thats true or not??

    You do not need to open up the center holes. ALL GM 8 lug wheels have the same size center holes.
