521dude Posted January 22, 2020 Report Share Posted January 22, 2020 So, hello everyone. I have a Frankenstein of a truck. 71 521 but the front of the frame has been cut and a 78-79 620 frame with ball joints and discs has been grafted directly to the 521. So basically it's a 78 620 on the front half, 71 521 in the rear. I've got spindles and hubs from a 2wd 97 d21 and big two piston calipers off a path finder, so I'm going to need larger wheels. I'm concerned the d21 spindles will make fitment slightly different. I'm looking at wheels currently that are 17x8.5, with a +18 offset and 5.46 backspacing. Every website I've looked at says they will not fit 97 d21, 78 620, or 71 521. In my head though, I can't figure out why they wouldn't fit. When I bought the truck, it had 17x7.5 +30 or 31 Chevy wheels. They "fit" they just looked awful. Sorry for the noob question, I don't know much about wheels. I used the search function, but everyone either uses Titan/Xterra wheels or 15s that are a mile wide. I couldn't find anything about offset/fitment for 17x8.5 wheels and I stated my concerns about the new spindles. Thank you all for your time. Sorry I don't currently have any photos, I assure you, it's a turd. 1 Quote Link to comment
