Both should fit though, I think? I am pretty sure the newer y spokes have different backspacing than the alcoas... But again I only THINK so

Look at the wheels on lazlers truck^^^^^. he has the dsg alcoas which also come in polished aluminum. The y spokes are the new style wheels. I forgot you are two wheel drive. I have heard that some wheels won't fit the front spindle because of the sizeof the bearing dust cap

No but you might have to machine out the center bore of the rims to fit over the wheel bearing dust cap

I think the only fitting issue with FX4 wheels on the 2wd trucks was actually the center caps...gotta do some trimming inside them to get them over the dust cap, but thats it.

Also try Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market to search at some of the local salvage yards. I just did it and I found several brushed, painted, and polished sets all within an hour of my house. Prices were $125-150 per set of 4.
