well i havent had a good experence with anything aluminum while being lifted....are you lifted if so how are they? iam just scared to run them with such a heavy wheel and tire combo i got......


EDIT:nm i just looked at your sig...you are lowered therefore lesser weight of the wheels......if anyone has used them while being lifted and big tires let me know because i know where some are if they will work no worries

They make some strong aluminum i know that. My Dad is running a 8" aluminum drop hitch on the f-250.

I would honestly save the $ for paint, and 'try' some wheel spacers.

Ive heard mixed things about spacers. I know Leo ran then when he had lightning wheels.. and he had problems with them. I *believe* he had a wheel come off one time

Leo ran wheel adapters, not wheel spacers.

And they were not installed properly.
