Will 15x8's Fit

I have a 2006 2wd, I am trying to get the American Racing Chamber Teflon for my truck and they only the closest size is 15x8, I think I need 15x7? Will the 15x8's fit? Can I do a simple Mod to make them fit?

15x8s will be just fine, no modding necessary

Because most dealers dont know **** about the mechanics of cars?

a 15x8 will fit for sure, hehe.. if your buying rims, dont tell them what its for, just order them up and make sure your bolt pattern is right (5x4.5)

I have been running 15x8's for 3.5 years and no problem, they look a little better than 15x7's.

because its not stock size, they can probably be held liable if something happens, or they just dont understand our trucks. Youll be perfectly ok with 8" wide wheels
