    Will this wheel fit on my 14bff and front 10 bolt? Basically, I'm wanting to know how big the 14ff hubs are. Also, what does a reverse backspace wheel mean?

    Didn't actually look at 'em but if they're 4.25" of backspacing or less than they'll fit on the 14 bolt drums. Even if they're a little more than than you can take a little bit off of the fins on the brake drums to make them fit. You might have to grind your front calipers a tad but I don't know that for sure.

    what I'm wondering about is the hole diameter... will the 14ff hubs clear? I'm window shopping for Christmas :xmas:

    I *THINK* most 8 luggers are bored large enough to clear Ford D60 hubs, which would give you plenty of clearance.

    2.5" backspacing, they will bolt up with no problem. i have 2.75" backspacing and the big 13" drums in teh back and they clear no problem, the front is the same way clear with no problem.

    the center hole should fit the 14bff hubs with no problem.

    the reverse center means that the drop center for putting tires on the rims is on the inside of the wheel instead of the outside like a normall center wheel. it makes it harder to loose an outter bead when aired down.

    I'm disappointed in the chrome but we all need a little bling :p:

    You can cram whatever tire you want on an 8" rim. People have run 44" TSL's on them before.

    It'd have to be stripped, just buy an unpainted rim.

    this is the only one with 2.5" backspacing... I would rather an unpainted or black, but that is all summit carries :eek1:

    Any particular reason you don't want more backspacing?

    If you're fond of those particular dimensions, PM BlackMesaOffroad or look up Timmay (don't flame me, he found the exact rims I wanted but couldn't find).

    I wonder, how do I know what the maximum weight load for that wheel is? Is it really critical? Is the tire load range really critical? because my burb is like the TITANIC :burb: :yikes:
    thanks,
    James
