I have seen it done think it was on TDS but it was the other way where a guy took Excursion rims and machined them to 6.5". I think what he did was machine them and put steel inserts as the holes are real close like 2.5mm apart or so. Thinking cost maybe significant if you don't own a machine shop like he did???
