In redrilling the rims, how did you get the new holes lined up just right? Or can they be not quite perfect and still be OK? My fabrication guy thinks this could be problematic, though we have turned out one rim that does bolt up. We are concerned that the slight slotting of the two new holes that had to be done to line it up right has weakened it.
What size of tires are you running,and are you having any clearance problems? I think the tires that were on the rims when I grabbed them from the side of the road are 205/70R14 or something close to that.
Any other issues that you had in mounting these wheel up?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

The problem may be solved for me. My fabrication guy said that any major machine shop will have a tool called a turntable which can drill two new holes perfectly. No screwing around with patterns or anything. Just perfect holes. I just have to wait about a month until I'm in anchorage to do it.

I am using 14 inch pugs.. they are straight bolt on. as far as tires, go I found that the best compromise between fender clearance and size was 185-75-14. I know that there are others running bigger tires, but I found that with no lift, anything larger, and I did try 2 larger sizes.. caused rubbing issues

Anyhow, I have jumped my suby over a bridge twice today in fact and run through all kinds of rough stuff with no problems. I recomend keeping an eye on your lugs though. Mine came loose the first day and I had to really crank them down. Haven't been loose since (3 months now).

I still had to cut my front fenders after I got the lift.
