A little help here on deciding

I would just like to know if these spacers will work with my setup.

It's summit part # CRR-29200



I want to get teh new center caps too, I think that will make the truck look a lot better with wider tires.

Opinions?

That doesn't compute to me, spacers don't give you wider tires... you mean a wider stance???

Yea, sorry guys I mistyped that...I meant wider stance.

Would it work with the current wheels I have now (cragars), b/c they will look a lot better pushed out.

Or should I not even mess with spacers?

spacers can be dagerous.. personally i would do it right.. but then again, that does cost more but it would be worth it in the end

question for you ... do you off road it at all?? if you do, do not get the spacers, you will wear out suspension parts faster, and you also have the oppertunity of having them break not a good combo if you are off road.

on road they are 'ok' but personally i would leave it alone due to safty. FoMoCo had his wheel fall off due to spacers .... just keep that in mind!

on a 100% street truck with like 26" tall tires sure i had them on my splash but not on a truck running offroad tires that unspring weight that is alot of strain on the studs. personally man sell your rocks and go buy some 15x10 mickey's there $420 from summit. you can get like $200 for your rocks probly. cover half the cost.

not only will it help your shaking problem, it will be around 8lb lighter and be better unspring weight and MPG...and wider...

I ws gonna say the same thing. You had enough problems with the steel wheels (thank god i didn't) and you want to add wheel spacers on top of that? I know it was just some idea that popped up, but I think you just need to get some really nice aluminum wheels... i plan to eventually.

They are up for sale right now. I just gotta start getting the word out.

I'd like to just at least sell the rims for now.

I bought my rocks for 200.54, If I could sell em for 200, I'd be in heaven, I wouldn't have lost any money. My tires, the same thing, bought em for 600, but I'd be lucky to get 1/2 that right now.

ricky, the spacers make it look really sweet, i had them on my 31s. but i would be very careful with them. theres gashes in my rim from where the rivets on the spacer lug stripped and i had to use a grinder to get the lug nut off. i got the ones off ebay for like 150 bucks, i think they are worth it looks-wise, but you run the risk of them screwing up like mine did.
