i used the hole saw method when i did my denalis. I went to lowes and bought a 3 inch and a 4 inch hole saw. I had to rig up some spacers so the 3 inch hole saw would stick out far enough so it would guide the 4 inch hole saw. It worked great for me. Stratusrt01 has the wheels on his truck and doesnt have any problems with them.

heard about that. no one seems to do it, but whatever works right? so do you go ALL the way through the wheel? is this only good for wheels with a cover on the front?

It does matter if the center hole is centered and drilled right. Becasue the tire is ballanced using the center hole, if it was fucked up then the wheel would not balance right.

True if the hole was damaged during the boring process, but if so that's no big deal any reputable tire shop has an attachment for their balancers that utilize the lug holes to mount the rim to the balancer, that how i do them at work since it is the best way to do so since that is how they are mounted to the car

your correct, In WA it is illiegal for a tire shop to mount tires ona modified wheel. Or at least that is what discount tire told me.

Over all i still feel that a machine shop is the best way to go.
