Very happy with the setup so far. We explored the Panamint valley south of Ballarat. Found the limits on clearance, had to stack rocks in one spot, but grip was great on the loose rocky bits. Didn’t take enough pictures, but here’s some wild burros.

So I got 6mm wheel spacers to get the offset back to stock. I only had 6-7 threads engaged, which seems like about maximum strength of a threaded connection to me, but I got extended thread lug nuts just in case. Everyone says 9 turns on 12x1.5 minimum. I also added some vinyl caps to keep crud out of the hubs. There wasn’t anything for a regular center cap to clip to.
