    I did a search and just want to make sure I'm reading right and understanding this. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    The only difference between SRW and DRW D60 is the hubs?
    Do people want the DRW hubs enough to trade their SRW hubs for them or will I need to have the DRW hubs machined?

    Why do people want the DRW hubs? Strength, Run Hummer wheels W/O recentering, or something else? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Thanx for putting up with my lame ???? /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You are correct, the bearing hubs are the only difference. Your rotors will work but the stud holes will have to be drilled out to the correct size. Look at the Billavista tech article posted on Pirate, I think the bit size is listed there somewhere.

    The advantage to using the DRW hubs is for running unmodified Hummer wheels.

    Sell the DRW hubs to someone who wants them like me. Then take the money and buy SRW hubs. People use them mainly for the hummer rims AFAIK.
