To the OP: there are several offsets / backspacings available.
Before spending any more money, I would confirm that these will work with the BS they got. I'd measure the BS first.

Don't stress man. My wheels have the same backspace (5 1/2"). I would suggest you google "hub centering rings" and try those before you do anything to your new wheels.

By the way, nice wheel choice. What size tire are you planning on running?

I tried to mount them up already, thats when I realized the hub was bigger. At that time I could see the there wouldn't be any problems. Looked like it would fit just fine.

Are the hub centric rings usually used for going from a smaller wheel hub to a larger bored rim? I'm not sure but if that is it, then it won't work for me.

Thanks for the compliment on the rims. I've already mouunted my tires, they are 274 45 20's. They look beautiful to me that one reason I really want to get these suckers on!!!

Yeah, you're right, the hub centric rings won't really work in your situation. Going from a larger hub to a smaller wheel bore will be more like a spacer. You can look, but I'm not sure if they exist like that.

You may want to find out what bore your wheels have now and go from there. You can probably email Motto to find out for sure

Good luck

I did the same thing when I bought my Tacoma. I took the rims to a machine shop and had them bored out. I think they charged me around $22 a rim.

When I got them back they would only fit my truck if I used spacers. I ended up selling them and buying new ones. Learned my lesson the hard way.

Please tell me my options as i cannot return these rims.

Can I bore them out myself? If so, and I make the rim bore larger than the hub bore, will it be safe with the studs taking the full brunt of the weight?

If I can't bore them, can I get some wheel adapters?

Please let me know if any of you have come across this situation and have any advice for me! I really appreciate it!

Why can't you return them?

You can't bore them out because if I'm not mistaken? You have the CHROME finish. If it was a polished finish then YES you can bore them out rather easily. Most machine shops can do it.

If you can't return it???

If you decide to use spacers? You may be able to get away with the 1/4" spacer? I believe 4WP have them. Or Ebay.

yes you can bore them out yourslef. how much more do you need to bore out? you need a router and a bit listed in this link. remember this posting is for going froma 3" bore to a 4" bore and does not need to go all the way through. in this link, they only need to go about 1/2" deep. you will need to decide what size bit you need to make this work. I've done it myself and it's very easy. the key is to go slow.

if you don't feel comfortable with this take them to a shop. you shouldn't pay more than $100 for all 4 unless you're desparate, which you seem to be.

Does anyone know a machine shop in the Orange County area that will machine the the center bore for some wheels. I bought some wheel and tires today that I couldnt pass up. I picked up 4 teflon mohaves with 265 70 17 Terra Grapplers for $350. They are the smaller bore off of a chevy but even with the cost of the maching it was too good for me to pass up. Thanks for your help!
