Don't even think about it Code!


I've seen this done before but wow is that ghetto. I mean yea it will work i suppose but the difference is at a machine shop they use a billet cutter of some sort of precision tool that will machine these nice and round and will ensure the wheels are exactly hub centeric thus minimizing potential runout problems such as vibrations and out of balance conditions.

I've also seen those hardbody folks use 4 inch hole saw bits to do it. Kudos for the guts but i'd rather bite the bullet and get a good job done expecially since my safety is at stake.

I have done some boring on 99-04 S-10 Xtreme rims to fit on the larger 94-97 axle / rotor with my dremel never had a problem and ran them for over 2 years. Howm much difference is there in the colorado/canyon size than the Titan Ecalade or even SS rims?

Fullsize GMs have 80mm hub bores, Colys, Hardbodys and early 2000 Frontier/Xterras all have 100mm bore.

:yeahthat:

It amounts to a little under an inch difference in diameter.

I'm kind of mixed on this. It works I suppose, but I don't know if I'd want to do it. :shrug:

i paid 10 bux a wheel to do my escalades. Worth the 40 buxs to have sumone else do it!!
Most shops will charge way more than $40 to do a full set of wheels. I think the average is between $150-200. There are always exceptions though, some have paid more and some have paid less.

So this would make the wheels lug centric. I prefer hub centric for ultimate minimal runout.
