Well, some of you will like them, some will hate them. The tires are too small, i know. They are almost brand new so i will use them this winter, then go with a set of 35's after. I am digging the big 20" wheels though. I think they show the axle placement extremely well.



As you can see, I only cleaned 1 wheel real good. (These were given to me from my step dad. I did have to buy adapters to fit 6 lug Chevy wheels though.... More on those later....)

Not really a fan like that. I think it would look better on a set of 37's!

I ordered a set of adapter plates from Lucky's Autosports (Lucky's Krazy Kustoms) in Lexington, KY. The spacer plates were perfect. 1/2x20 lug nut hole, 1 7/8" thick, perfect. the silverado plate on the other had was a totally different story....

not only did they charge me 400 freaking bucks, they also didn't mill the center out enough to cover the lock outs.

What was their excuse?? "Well, you didn't tell me you had lock outs"

I simply replied with, "Why didn't you mill the same center out all the way through?"

"That's how they come. You're the builder, you should know"

I said ok, and hung up. I will never do business there again. So i had them milled by another company, and installed the spacers, adapters, and wheels, which is what you see above...................................




















then this happened.....






The reason was due to the wrong lugnuts. Lucky's installed METRIC studs and never decided to tell me. Maybe that is my fault, but figuring as 99.9 % of American troucks run a 1/2 .20 lug nut, i just assumed that was what they installed..... I was wrong.

I'm not a big fan of the little tires either, but hey, free 20's with tires, I'll take them. Like i said, I am going to 35's after winter. It will look reall good then. Trust me

Wow, I would say it's their fault.

What are you going to do?

Well, as you can decipher from the post above, i called and talked to the owner of the "corporation", which if it is a true corporation, there is no "owner", as it is owned by the investors, just a CEO.

he told me i should have known better, as i am the builder.

All i asked was he replace the adapter, (seriously, like 50 bucks) he wouldn't. So i am taking this viral. I want everyone to know how "great" their customer service is.

they changed the name once because of earning a bad reputation. Looks as though nothing has changed.

I have spoken to other people in Lexington, and all of them say the same thing. They do whatever it takes to get your money, but once they have it, they don't care anymore.

my step dad hooked it up for the milling of the center bore on the adapters, so now i just need to replace the studs in the adapter plate and convert all the lugnuts to metric on the adapters. Hoping to have the money for all this weekend
