05 with ford 20" wheel conversion

Here is a test fit of the new wheels im going with. They are new 2005 model 20" wheels witb a 6" backspace. Stock is 4.5". I have some freds spacers on the way. They clear everything. I even mocked it up with a spacer to verify. They are a 285-65-20 tire on a 20x8. Here are a few pics. Still going to do a 2" leveling kit because its 2wd.

Thanks guys. I like the combo it just makes it look new model. I did order the 2 " spacers like most do, because you dont have to cut any studs. but honestly I think that a 1"or 1.5" would be better because this keeps the wheel under the fender just like the factory wheels. Fred from wheel adapters.com has the thinner ones in stock but I would have to cut 1/2" off all the studs to keep them from sticking out past adapter. I could not imagine this. I will posts some more pics when they arrive and get opinions on this. Thanks.

could you post some pictures with the wheels and adapters on, and how it looks from a side profile so we can see if wheels stick out.

thanks.

Hey. I will be glad to post some better side pics when spacers arrive. I mocked it up without spacers and they sit in about 1 1/2". I think a 1 1/2" spacer would be more than Enough but it takes 2" to clear factory studs. Unless you want to trim 1/2" off of 32 studs. Spacers actually went missing while being shipped through fed ex. So I have a second set on the way.

Well, I finally received the Freds adapters yesterday and they are very well made. They are 15 lbs per adapter. Here are some pics. Hopefully I can test fit a wheel again with the adapter today.

I have 2 inch adaptors and I had to cut about an 1/8 inch off the studs. I have an 05 350 just make sure the studs are completely recessed in the spacer if not the wheel won't pull tight.

2005 cclb f350 4x4 sold
