Default Question about H1 wheels

I'm getting ready to order some H1 wheels and tires for my YJ. I'm going to put them on 77 f250 d44/d60 axles and was wondering if a stock wheel would clear the steering and breaks. If not, what BS would I need to move them a little further into the wheel wells?

And what crazy steering arm are you talking about? It's a $400 difference between 4 stock wheels and 4 re-centered wheels in this case.

I think thats only if you want high steer. It should clear the stock arm just fine but the tie rod clearance does get tight in there though.

IIRC, Bones had TRE issues with H1's and a D44 front on his CJ-8, but I don't know what model D44 it was and I'm too lazy to search.

Well I guess it'll be dealt with after the wheels and tires get in.

Bones had a Chevy Dana 44 with non-hysteer, he ran small wheel spacers, the steering arm on the Chevy knuckles is longer than the Ford ones.

Yes, 7" is correct.

Order re-centers and do them yourself. I just did this and have 3.5" backspacing.

Thanks for the info guys. Just got a quote for 4 H1 wheels 12 bolt beadlock and new(ish) H1 tires for 858 shipping included. Now I just have to find a D60 thats within a reasonable distance to Macomb county. If the wheels don't work off the bat, then I'll re-center.

Personally I would look for some for cheaper. I got a set of 4 8 bolt wheels with mag strips and newish tires for $450 from someone locally.

Well from my research, the 8 bolts don't play well with radials. But if I found a set locally.. I would jump on them. I've got time...2 more months here...so no rush for me.

There is a guy on Ebay, I think in texas, that sells the 8-bolts for about $450-$500 shipped. I dont think they came with the mags though, but if I remember right you can get those for about $25. Otherwise the guy on Pirate is a good hookup too.

Why don't you just throw a H1 up on blocks over there in the desert and ship yourself the wheels home. Obama can afford to replace them
