Alcoa guys!

I was going to PM one of you. but i can't find anyone off hand in the portal with a set.
Can somebody so me a HUGE favor? I need you to measure the inside diameter of the wheel too see if a 4x4 hub like mine would fit in between there.
Just the spot where your center cap covers. I was gonna look at the set i posted on the CL find later this week. but i wanna be sure before i go out and waste some time.

I'm betting it's not going to fit... I don't have my set anymore but that center hole is pretty damn small!

I bought the alcoa's for my ranger from a guy that said he had them on a 93 ranger. I had to buy 2 new center caps because he removed the other ones "with a hammer so they would clear the hubs"

idk if the ttb trucks have a larger hub than the 98-00's but either way they'll have to be bored out a little bit. i think the guy im trying to find used a holesaw

I bored out Holes once for these hubs, Its a PITA and i went thru like two chisel bits (I used metal sanding bits the tool guy said would do the job)
If they aren't worth the time (two are half painted black) Then i'll just save the 100 bucks and whatever else i'll spend taking the paint off/polishing them up and buy Classic 2s
