Default 24 bolt hummer wheel question

I am doing a lift- body swap on a 81 chevy 1 ton single rear wheel truck, (dana 60 ft) going to do a 4-6 inch lift,
I have a set of 37 -16.5 mtr's,, and really like the hummer bead lock's (24 bolt) I asked wheel craft how much to re center them and they told me $175 each! anybody know of a cheaper way to get these on the truck??? and I know I will get blasted with,,, buy a wagon wheel, wheel spacers,, etc,,

just wondering what you other guys did, or if ya know of another place who will re center these cheaper...

also if somebody has a 73-87 chevy with these, I would love to see them.

do it your self not that hard, or try calling trailworthyfab and see what they want to just recenter a wheel. you can also convert to a dually width and run the wheels with the stock off set

I went dually with my 8 bolt h1 and just spaced the rear. You could space all the way around I suppose too

Any reason you like the 24 bolts so much? Planning on some hardcore wheeling with your lift and larger tires? Planning to run on the street? Bdmt?

I love the look of the 24 bolts, they are the same price as 12 bolts, and i'm gonna thrash this truck to death,,, where ever I am, dirt, sand, mud, pavement!

If you are planning on really "thrashing" the truck, I would not mess with spacers.

I off road mine, but not thrash.
