Did you make sure those wheels clear the drive flange bolts?

The tire guys and I both looked them over carefully on a test fit and everything looked good. I do want to get spacers soon, so I can run the center caps. That and steer lock to lock again.

I would puts some grease on the hubs surface and make sure they are going all the way on as they should foul the thick drive flange by heads.

son of a bitch are you clairvoyant or something John?

I broke out a dentist mirror and my mag light and looked the backs are good to hook (the one we test fitted)

The fronts have a small gap. I'm half tempted to pull them and grind out a bit of material on the rim but I know thats the wrong answer.

Guess I need some spacers and quick.

Some people have gotten enough room by removing the lock washers.

That's an idea. I'm guessing you tried this before...
