    rear brake drums

    i have a 95 camaro disc brakes on front, and drums on the back. Everytime i goto put a set of wheels on the back they wont fit cause on my brake drum there is a lip around the center that keeps the wheel from going on unless i bore the wheel out?....how can i get around this its driving me crazy...i bought a set of 18in. wheels and the front fit but the rear wont cause of the lip.....im not boring these rims out...thank you

    You either have to grind the axle hub down(too hard and not recommended) or you take a few thousands off the center hub on the aluminum rim(much easier)

    My Chrome 17" WS6 rims would not fit over my hub,out came the die grinder,I took off a few thousand's and it slid right over.

    I also did it to my Chrome 99 Vette wagon wheels that have my drag radials on them.
