what gives? my rims dont fit on my buddys ranger...

this is my truck and his truck

his is a 98, mine's an 07.

and just for fun, since he has the bfg a/ts that im getting soon, i wanted to see how they would look on my truck, so we were gonna swap rims for a while for fun. well, his fit on mine no problem, but my stockers wouldnt fit on his truck.

his truck had a huge hub sticking out or w/e where mine is completely flat, and because of that hub, my rim wouldnt fit on his truck.

i had no idea that would happen.

He has the PVH hubs, you have to enlarge the hole in your rim for them.

2000.5 was when they changed the trucks over to liveaxle. My 2000 was a second half model year truck that had liveaxle.
