    Ok guys,

    I'm ready to purchase some recentered H1 rims from usa6x6 but have no idea what backspacing to go with. Can I get some input from the experts (newbs need not reply)?? I have some 42/15/16.5 tsls and am running 5" of lift and the axle forward 1.5". I really want to get the best backspacing to clear these tires with minimal trimmin/body lift. Only really worried about the front clearences because there won't be a bed on my rig. Does anyone think I'll need the rims widened too? I wasn't planning on it. :dunno:

    On the 8-bolts there is a ridge in the wheel that makes the center hit right around 4" BS. Thats where alot of people weld the centers in at home. THey most likely can do a bit more or alot less at USA6x6. As to widening, 15" tire on a 8" sounds a bit off.

    I tried to get through on the phone with USA6x6 but got their voicemail and couldn't leave a message because the mailbox was full.

    BTW, Daniel at USA6x6 offers a 10% discount or free shipping for CK5.com members...if you remind them. He states that in his post in the vendor section.

    I ran 3.5" back spacing on my recentered 8 bolt hummer rims and it was perfect (stuck a bit out past the body). You dont need to widen them either, I ran a 38-16-16.5 tsl with no problems at all.

    Bend over. Daniel is the Only Vendor to ever get banned from pirate, and Get all his post's he ever made removed. I will say there are so many thread's about him and it is your decision and money but look out. It will take him for ever to get anything to ya . Even if it is on the shelf . He is a lying Meth Head. .. And a complete Piece of Shi-9-t

    I smell something bitter... Yeah, I know its a risk... I didn't know he was banned from pirate?! why? Well I'm not in a big hurry for the rims, but if they dont come in the 4-6 weeks they said they would take... I'll go from there

    I think Daniel needs to expand his staff... maybe get a little more organized...
    Thats what this mess looks like... All in all, my order is placed and I'm giving it a shot...
