Current plan is to ship them to DaBlist because he's gonna find me a set of 14x8 D-slots for my 1200...

 

If only 1200's had 5x114.3 we could probably make that happen

 

D-slots in

 

4x114.3  14x6 boring and easy

 

4x114.3  14x7 doable

 

4x114.3  14x8  I think would take your talents to find


 "It's like comparing a wooden roller coaster to a modern modern roller coaster. Without a doubt the modern roller coaster is faster, quieter and smoother. But people still love to ride the wooden roller coasters. The sounds, vibrations, jerks and jolts all add to the experience. Sure a wooden roller coaster may not be as fast, but it's sure a fun ride that can equally scare the crap out of you." - Annette

You know this is actually a fairly easy thing to do, right?   ^_^

 

But if I do it, it won't be for D-slots. It'll be for something like this.   :cool:


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Never seen them in person except in 5 lug. Half tempted to try what vex210 did and get a set of 5 lug 14x8s and weld up the lug holes and redrill...
