Im thinking about H1s for my truck, how much did those spacers set you back? And do you also have 1.5s on the back?
so those are stock h1's? they clear!
Yes they clear,with my 1.5" spacers that I have on all four wheels.
If you want a wide truck get the rims recentered instead
I like my truck slim so I can go where the samis and heeps go
A 1.5" spacer would give them the same BS as a H2 wheel, right?
LOL I hear ya!
I guess the BS on the H1 is 7" so it would be 5.5" with the spacer.
I don´t know the BS of a H2 wheel
Looks good but my question is are your tires hitting the steering box or springs at full lock?
No just the front end of the draglink as you can see in the first pics.
Yep. I think that H2's are 5.5.
How close is the tire to the inner wheel well in the rear?
This makes me want my HMMWV rims on even more. Thanks for the pics.
When flexing (as much as it can with 1-ton rear springs and 6" blocks)it touches the wheelwell but no tire damage yet.
I have been wheeling like this for a couple of years.
I noticed when I measured my K-5 79 that the wheelwells are a little wider on the K-5s than the pickups
Sorry that can be misunderstood the wheelwells on my K-5 was wider apart from eachother than they are on my M1008 so I´m not sure that 1.5" spacers in the rear would do the trick on the K-5.
How far do your front hubs stick out past the rim?
I don´t know but will measure til tomorrow and post up .
Cool. I am really considering running the 2" spacers on mine, but when I look at the truck it does not look like it will work........even though you are proof that it will.
From the outside of the lockinghub to where the rim is widest (on the lip just outside the bead) it´s 1,5" or 40mm.
If I measure from the tire outside to the hub it´s 0,5" or 13mm that is with 15 38.5 16.5 boggers
Well I guess my eyes are just not calibrated then
Everytime I look at my axles it seems like the design of the rims just will not work even with the 2" spacers. I will measure again then try to talk my wife into letting me buy some spacers.
so if i use a 2" spacer and h2 rims it would be the same as a 3.5" bs? summit told me their eaton steel truck wheels only come with 3.5" bs. where do you get 2" spacers? 1.5 is the thickest i've ever seen.
look in the vendor forum
i wonder how that would work in the back.. that front end is a good bit wider than the back.. it looks goofy from behind.
