Wheels finally installed

I switched over to these GM wheels w/GMC center caps, but the big Dana 60 hubs didn't clear the center caps. I wound up installing longer studs (already had to drill them out for 9/16" studs to use the correct modern lug nuts anyway), then a spacer (the picture shows 2 but I only needed one).

Re: Wheels finally installed

Best looking modern GM wheels for these 8 lug trucks with decent offset so they don't tuck under too far like most new wheels. I'm glad you were able to make them work.

The do look great! I dislike Hummer H2's so much though that it's hard to like them.

Re: Wheels finally installed

Wow! That looks good. They really complement your paint.
I have been looking at wheel options for my Dana 60 also..
What size are those rims and tires?
Also, where did you get the spacers? How thick are they?
And of course I gotta ask for some more pics! Curious what the stance looks like from the front and rear.
