4.183 in. center bore isn't big enough for 620 hub?

 

Yep. Needs to be 4.25 in most cases, so you'll need a small spacer for these to fit. I'd pass.


Proper Capitalization is the difference between: I helped my Uncle jack off a horse and I helped my Uncle Jack off a horse.

$856 worth of rims. Add in cost of machining the hubs, cost of longer wheel studs, lug nuts...and now 17" tires too.



And...AND...all of this weight is still on drum brakes.

But hey, if you think it's cool.



I'd be beyond happy with a set of 16" slots with good tires...and pocket the $400 saved.

When I put the K5s on my truck I could feel the difference big time. I would not add that much weight again.

I know a lot of Datsun's that have wheels and tires worth more than the Datsuns they ar on!!!  LOL

 

Nothing better than to see a $6000 set of wheels and tires being eaton up by a rusted out Datsun wheel well because someone dumped said datsun on the ground!  LOL

A $500 car alarm on a $150 car.

 

What is it than makes people spend so much on flash and so little on style and worth??? Show over go?? Ego over elegance??  I think it speaks to all the others that have a shallow view of true value and see bling rims as status and the vehicle secondary, merely something to hang them on. Rims should be an understated part of a harmonious whole that compliments the vehicle they are on.   

 

The 620 is already beautiful looking. It can easily get by wearing pearls rather than diamonds.

I think the answer to that question, Mike, is closely related to age, which is a major factor in experience.

 

I have a neighbor kid who helps me out around the shop and in trade I help him with his Tacoma. He wants seats, LED's, bumpers, window tinting and stereo stuff  when what he should be buying is diff gears, lockers, transfer case adapters, rock sliders and stronger axle shafts.

 

They get some money burnin a hole in their pocket...

Sort of. He's a young kid and doesn't know what real offroading is yet.
