    I'd like to hear people's opinions.... Do we like this (if so, why?), or do we not like this (if so, why?)? Essentially, what's the general thought behind it.

    SRW front and rear axles with 'normal' backspacing on the rims, or DRW front and rear axles with stock H1's on them.


    Please don't post up and tell me to "Talk to this person, he's running it". I know who's running it :p: . Thanks, gents.

    Im a fan of drw w/ h1's. I like the bead lock fact and the cheap factor. Prolly the 2 biggest factors...

    Also no need for a drw rear (ie. a d70) spacers will work, a van 14 bolt, 14 bolt hubs on a 70 for an even wider stance, or drw 60 front hubs modded a lil to fit a 14 bolt...

    That and it looks sweet!

    DRW 60's tend to be a little cheaper than SRW ones and you don't have to spend any money to get your rims recentered

    What about leverage, or stress, on the hubs due to how far out they are....? Is that an issue?

    If you were to run wheels with "normal" backspacing, yes leverage would be a potential problem. Because of the offset of unmodified H1's, it's not much different from what an average stock dually feels.
