Opened up this set of wheels hub bore for a friends son to go on his lifted Ram 2500. Fricking things are massive and just barely fit on my mill. I am pretty sure he said they were 20 x 14's.

Nice work Matt. Those are indeed huge wheels, I see a few big trucks running around with extra wide wheels, not my kind look, but it seems to be the style

I agree Sal, not my cup of tea either but it seems to be what the young guys are doing these days. I guess that's just another sign I am getting old... LOL

The roller skate look
It awesomely throws whatever road debris down the side of the truck and ruins wheel bearings at the same time.

Those look like a -50 offset.
I did a set of Hummer H2 rims and used a router with a laminate cutter in it, but it was just a 1/4” lip to take off.

Yeah the kids dad and I were both saying the exact same thing about bearings and road debris.

I didn't measure the offset on these but I would guess you to be in the ball park as there is a lot more to the outside than the inside, if anything it maybe more than -50. I cant imagine trying a router on these as I think they are close to 1 1/2 thick and I had to open the diameter up 3/16".

Mav, while agree it wont see the mud it wont be a mall crawler. This kid is country boy thru and thru.

These really wide wheels and tires hanging clear out of the fenders is a new fad in the light truck world. I don't quite get it. In the end it's costing you big money when those tires throw all those rocks on your nice paint/body. Those are some high dollar wheels too. That stinks they didn't come with a large enough opening to start with.

It's nice to see lifted trucks making a come back...... I've been driving one since the 1980's.

Back then the cops gave us a hard time if we didn't have fender flares or mud flaps to cover the tires that stuck out..... I guess times really have changed.
