A buddy, not close has traded up.

I want some Chrome wheels, and he said he would sell me his for cheap.

Anyone running some on a 2500 GM truck?

Do they fit? In order to get H2 wheels to fit on a Dodge, you have to do some machine work in the center. I would think dodge wheels on a Chevy would no longer be hub centric.

Dictionary dot com uses this for the definition of dodge

dodge

1. To avoid by moving or shifting quickly aside.
2. To evade by cunning, trickery, or deceit

I think I would avoid them, because that is what it stands for.
:lol:

I enjoyed the Dodge jokes, but does anyone want to really answer the question?

I have never seen that setup personally... I figured it was due to the fact there is a goat-head on the center caps?

if a h2 rim will fit on a ram, id assume it will work on a 2500. and as for the center caps u can modify the ram caps to fit the h2 rims so im pretty sure u can get the chevy caps on the dodge rims.

The center hole size is larger on the Dodge wheels. This means no longer hub centric but lug centric. Would probably cause a wheel-lug failure.

I believe the hubs are bigger on the dodge that is why the centers of the H2 wheels have to be milled out Had a buddy do this. I would think the dodge wheels would more or less bolt on.

I could be wrong, so i'm sorry if i am. I pretty sure chevy wheels are lug centric anyway. That is why the lugs have a tapper to them. If you notice when running up the lugs, they are what center the rim.

Nope, the PYO's are indeed a hub centric wheel ...but the majority of aftermarket wheels are lug centric so I don't think this would be an issue ...as long as the wheels are true.

If they are hub centric, why have tappered lug nuts? Also, their is no hub in the front. So are the fronts not hub centric? Also the non hd's have no full floating axles, so no hub. Yet, they have the same wheels.

I believe you can only swap wheels between Ford and Dodge HD Trucks.

Cheyenne is correct, the factory wheels on the front of the 2500HD are not hub centric.

I respectively disagree :) My PYO's are centered based on the center hub area mount tight to the center hub area. With no lug nuts on the wheel there is no play/space betwen the wheel hole and hub. The tire shop also told me they are hub centric. We are talking the PYO wheels correct? :confused:

Only a few threads I found regarding the topic which has been discussed lots of times in the past.
