    h1 rims have 7 inches of backspacing.

    2 inch spacers would be 5 inches of backspacing. dunno if thats enough.

    buying new centers would be cheaper than wheel spacers, i think. i got my centers for aroun 180 bucks shipped to my door. last i checked, wheel spacers like what you are looking for are around 140 bucks a set. so....two sets would be around 280 plus shipping, so that would leave you 100-150 bucks to have them recentered, which i think is doable.

    hmm...5 inches of backspacing still doesnt seem like enough but id really rather just bolt the rims on vs cutting and welding and buying...i know i can come up w/ some DRW D60 hubs for the front...do you know anything about a stock dually spacer off XXXX vehicle fitting over the rear hub? also...does a DRW D60 hub use the same bearings and stuff as my SRW one? thanks for your help...
