    I looked into pvc inserts but at $200 a set thats more than I wanted to spend. Also looked into buy some 16" pvc pipe and cutting it down. I figured out why they cost $50 each. :eek1: The mag r.f.s came with the rims so I just cut these down on the verticle band saw. Pretty easy to do.

    tell me what you mean

    i'm looking at a lot of 52 hummer pull offs they have about 50% tread on most of them and they are still mounted up to the h1 military rims....the lot is sitting at $115 and has been there as i am the only bidder so far, it has 3 more days and i may have them they are 36-12.50-16.5 GOODYEAR WRANGLER R/ T II.

    they have about 124 tires and rims up for liquidation auction i bid on 2 lots of 16 tires and 1 lot of 20 tires.....was thinking about buying all they have...but i thought they would fit my 8 lug axels under my k-5 ..just bolt on and go..

    that brings me to my question..what is this recentering you are talking about you are doing to these rims..is it something you have to do to put them on a standard 8 lug axel? thanks for any help

    They will bolt right up to your K5, but you will not be able to turn your front tires. The rims have 7in of back spacing and will hit your tie rod ends. That is why you have to have them recenterd, for less back spacing usally around 3in to 3 3/4in. The only other opton is to use wheel spacers, most people use spacers from a dulley. hope this helps.

    Had a really bad rain storm that day. It sometimes floods through the middle of the shop.

    Here are a few pics of the stages of the recentering.
    Stock H1 with 7" of backspacing.
