What kind of backspacing are you guys running your RECENTERED H1 wheels at with Artec arms? I want to tuck these in as tight as possible so if I can run 4-5" of BS, awesome.

Their website says:
These arms have been confirmed to fit 17", 4.75" backspaced wheels. Will NOT work with factory backspaced H1 wheels. The bulge on the side of the arm measures 1.25" from the spindle mounting surface. Please confirm you have adequate space between arms and wheels/tires before purchasing.
I'm setting up the wheels before setting the axle under the truck so I can't measure for another couple months, unless someone wants to donate an Artec D60 high steer arm for testing purposes. :D

I'd do the steering before I welded the wheels, I'd just not want to take the risk.
My arms are on 4.75 bs 17" wheels and they sit VERY close to the wheel.

I'm still rocking a D44 8 lug front at the moment but am switching to Ford 79 D60 in October. I'll be wheeling the front and H1's all the way to the D60 swap.

Artec's site clearly states the maximum confirmed backspacing that can be run with their 60 arms.... so what exactly is the question here?

The question is whether or not you can read....apparently :flipoff2:. Their site says 17" wheels, what are H1's? :smokin:
