ATV park? You dont have your own property to tear up? A lot of my riding is actually done on neighboring fields and woods. I do fairly little on mine.

this may work too... iirc nobody's mentioned trying it yet. I know I used half of trick on my old subaru mudder....

get some 4 lug hubs from an old subaru. the big wide ones. actually get 1 to start with, and check to see if the 4 lug adapters fit the center (and smaller) 4 bolt hub retainer mount holes. Assuming they do (and I do believe they will... I have a hunch) the next step is the real trick:

set the hub up so you can pound out or cut and drill out 2 of the lugs opposite each other. 2 that line up regardless, top-bottom, side-side whatever...

once they're out - you should have something roughly like this : (o o) but not the other 2. Moving on...

Get a chevy 6 lug rim and set it on the hub - the 2 remaining lugs will hold it down. Mark the other 4 holes with rim on and drill out. Get the replacement lug bolts and nuts to match the subaru ones - 4 more for each hub and press/weld in. Voila! you now have 6 lug hub to mount Chevy/toyota/ whatever type rims in any size with that pattern, and of course, bigger tires Smile

Special bonus - it acts like a spacer too!

I have a big hunch this'll work...
