My son wants to put a set of these on his pickup. It's a HD 3/4 ton, 8 on 6.5" bolt circle. Anyone done this yet? Got pics? Any problem areas with fit? If I don't hear anything here, we'll try it out this spring and I'll post it here.

Only thing I can think of is the hub diameter. Don't the older trucks have the larger size hubs?

Bolt circle is the same.

IIRC the 88-00 have the same hub size as the new trucks but pre 88 has the larger hub like the dodge still uses.

Get someone w/ a CNC mill and have the open up the center hole.

I've even heard of people using a hole saw to open the hole up.

I put some on My jeepster, his truck should have a d44 or 10 bolt up front, I know the hubs are too big for the wheel, you have to machine the centers of the wheel out, the only good way to do so is with a rotary table and overhead mill or a big lathe. It cost me about 120.00 to have the set done at a local machine shop here, but the wheels were free so I didn't care

Okay, that's what we needed to know. He wants to use them so I'll be looking into the process of opening up the center. And if nothing else, I can always sell them to a wider user base... Thanks for the info.
