junk yard 22.5 Need some insight

I can get a set of steel 22.5 for $250. He said he had 2 styles. The ones that take the pilot stud on the duals or the ones that you slide both wheels on the studs and torque em down. I am wondering how the more common adapter is made. I am assuming the the 2nd style right? Also, are there diffent bolt spacings and center sizes?

there is two types of wheels, a hub pilot which only uses a stud with a nut to hold them on, that is the most common adaptor, the second type is a bud pilot wheel, where one wheel goes on and then you tighten it down is a nut/stud style bolt, and then the second wheel goes on and tightens down with a nut, i have not seen a adaptor made with that style lug

the best way to tell the difference between the two, hub pilot will have a hole for a stud to go in, the bud pilot wheel there the studs come through, the holes will have a beveled edge

I gotcha. Thanks. What about bolt patterns and center size. Are they all the same or different for different trucks

There are two different lug patterns, a small and a large. I do not recommend using an all steel wheel setup. There is nothing to gain, but a ton of rotational mass. You will see a big difference in power and stopping. It's best to stick with at least four aluminum wheels and use only two steel wheels for inners. The steels are honestly just to heavy.

i agree with performance, you would be adding a ton of useless weight

I am also looking into doing this conversion. How much of a lift do you have to put on your truck, spacers and things like that? And what kind of ride quality and weather performance can you expect with this setup?
