Yes, pro comp 51s. The set of five came out to just under $300, from summit racing

So I am reading my lugcentric wheel spacers are the safest after I already picked up a great used set 31x10.5 on some old 5x5.5 ramcharger turbines. I am not finding a hubcentric set, and at 160 per pair of customer adapters I am considering just getting some of those procomps and dismounting/remounting and balancing the tires and selling the rims.

Did you find a hubcentric ring for your procomps to the blazer hub or are you just running the lugs?

Thanks

I don't know about hubcentric, I just ordered them in the 5x4.75" bolt spacing our trucks have, and bolted em on

So, I've been reading about hub vs lug centric, and you have me worried lol

The not-so-good news is that with 33x12.5s on 10" wide rims I suspect you'll be hard against the fenders without even turning the wheels, both front and back. And with 3.75" of backspacing, 1.25" spacers, and the aforementioned 10" wide rims you will guaranteed not be able to turn without hitting both the front and back of the fenders. Even with 4" of lift (2" BL and 2" T-bar) I doubt you could turn without hitting the fenders. The outside edge of your rims will be 5" further out than stock (3" wider rim vs stock 7", and 2.5" backspacing when you combine the rims and spacers) plus the extra 2.5ish inches of tire that will be hanging over the lip of the rim vs a stock 235/75/15.
What is the consensus with running aftermarket wheels with different ID bores. Is everyone finding hub rings to adapt or running with just the lugs?
