    Need closeup of hub... should say spicer right on it though

    The rims are factory, possibly made in hungary...(outsourcing:rolleyes:)

    And the rings i believe are spacers... were they in between the set of rear rims?

    no, they were on the outside of the front rims, see that rust ring on the wheel? thats where that ring sat and the lugnuts ran up against the flat ring... the hubs dont say anything on them, the dials are chunked a little but the hubs do work, so ill leave them for now, just wondering...

    the rims are GM. the rings are for a dually application. if you look on the rims they are pictured with the rims do not have a tapered seat for the lugnuts.

    What size tires are those? How tall are they? I may be looking for a set of those for my tow rig.

    Snap a close up shot of the lockouts......can't see them from that far.

    Those rings are normal on dually rims. The DRW K30 at my shop has them. As stated above, they have tapers on them for the lug nuts as the rims themselves don't.

    they don't taper the wheels because then you can use them in any position. If they tapered them then 2 would be tapered on the outside for the front. 2 would be tapered on the inside for the outer rears and 2 would have no taper so they sat flush to the hub in the rear and the outer sat flush to it. Get it.

    Can you measure the backspacing on the HD rims while you've got a couple loose still?
