One last thing to note, I'm having a few issues with backing plates, which I'd really like to run. Thinking on having them tacked onto the spindles as there seems to be no other viable way of mounting them cause of the distance between the hub and spindle. My idea is that they'll be held in place by the caliper mount bolts, but this is yet to be tested.

I presume that most people don't run them.

Offset is a problem with wheels. My cookie cutters were too wide, but teledials fit a treat. There is almost the same as factory turning circle on them with a stock beam cause of the offset.

Like I said, this is just one method, easy and relatively cheap allowing the use of many factory components.
