So what setup is that? I'm wantin to run my 44's with the stock negative offset h1 rims on a duellie setup front axle. I don't think my scrub rad will be that bad.

have 40s, hate them. tires wear so they are always an upgrade item :), stock ford d60 outers.

that setup in the pic is chevy duallie outers with unmodified h1s, he narrowed the axle. just an image I found searching p4x4 for backspacing pics

the scrub will be less the taller the tire, the SAI is about 10° so you can math it out to see if it works

I changed the backspacing on mine to 3 3/4"... Seem to be good there to me. The USA 6x6 centers are what i got... and that was just the spacing the centers provided without being modified... it worked for me, so that's where i put them. Try and get the pressed centers if you can... The flat cut centers won't flex, and tend to crack. A lighter pressed center seems to be the better choice. USA 6x6 was a horrible company... but at the time, the only people offering the pressed centers. There are other vendors now.

Make sure you add the rock ring on them right away... I never did, now I have to add it. First couple times out it started pealing the edges of the bead up on the outside.

looks like pressed centers is gonna happen :)
will try for as much backspacing as I can get but it looks like only 3.5" area is possible.
getting every option he offers on the rims
