    Went from stock steelies to KMX Enduros...

    Hub bore went from 60 to 83 and now the metal piece on the end of steel wire slips through the new spare... Looks like the whole deal is swaged on...

    Can you suggest a solution?

    Off the top of my head my ideas are:

    1: buy a new hoist of equal hub diameter to new wheel and affix it somehow to stock location (6 lugs run 106mm I believe so that prob won't work)
    2: have a welder put some extension tabs on stock hoist
    3: get yourself a piece of circular steel sheet, drilled out to the 60mm stock diameter, place it on the underside of the new wheel and place the stock hoist through that, basically sandwiching the wheel in.

    @JdevTac Suggestion 3 sounds like the way I'd be leaning... Thanks for the ideas. :thumbsup:

    Just wondering about buying hub rings...

    Do those get installed on the wheel?

    Would that work?

    Maybe someone else will chime in. My understanding of hub rings is they just make up the difference really to try and eliminate any vibrations from not using a hub centric wheel. Don’t know if that would be sturdy enough to hold up the spare under the bed. A hub centric spacer however should accomplish the same as my #3 above id imagine.

    Hubcentric spacer...good idea...hadn't thought about that.

    U.S. Wheel Adapters makes aluminum hub centric rings...but like you wrote...don't know if they would be strong enough...and they would have to be custom for the size that I'm looking for.

    I'll check out hubcentric spacers first. :thumbsup:

    I realize this post is a bit old but am curious what the OP’s final solution was. I am facing a similar dilemma on my 2003 where I want to store a 17” FJ steelie as a spare instead of the stock 16”, and the hub bore is larger.
