20" 2011 rims on my 99 7.3 F250 pics

Hey guys,This is a story of highs,lows,pics (if I upload them correctly)and a pending results of mounting my 2011 rims on my 1999 superduty.So I finally got my 20" 2011 F250 rims off Fleabay and I picked up the tires locally used.I am almost free of my 16" rims. Now I say "almost" because I also ordered my 2" wheel spacers on Fleabay (ebay) which are aluminum pieces of sh*t.Now everyone knows you need 2" spacers to make the 2011 stock f250 rims fit a 1999-2003(not sure after 2003) and not rub the springs on turns.So I removed my stock 16" rims and and mounted these aluminum spacers from Fleabay.Then I mounted my new 2011 F250 rims the these spacers and realized that the studs on the cheap spacers were way too short.The stock lug nuts only threaded half way thru.The studs were a 1"to a 1/2" way too short.I pressed out a stud and brought it to a real auto parts store(not an aid auto store or auto zone) and they couldnt find a longer one.So when I got home I went thru the forums and read how great goeske steel spacers were and ordered them.I went to their site wheeladapter.com and got the phone number and ordered them directly over the phone.To my amazement I got Fred Goeske himself.At 75 year olds he running his businness and answering phone,I was very impressed.He knew what I needed and was very knowledgeable.So now I got my real spacers coming in the mail and cant wait for them.The after pics I posted right now are my 1999 f250 7.3 on half lugged threaded aluminum crap spacers with the new 2011 rims but i not driving the truck anywhere.when I get real spacers from fred goeske Im sure the pic will look the same except I can drive the drive without the worry of the wheels falling off,which is a nice option.I will update pics when I get the steel spacers but the pics will prolly look the same.Hopes this helps

The steel spacers are much better. How much dd they cost?

Did you try the rough country aluminum spacers or a no name brand?

I just ordered the steel spacers from Fred goeske Wheeladapter.com.There gonna be over 600.00 but thats cheaper then losing a wheel on the highway.I originally bought the cheap 200.00 aluminum 2"spacer from ebay and WHAT A Big waste of money.I guess i live and learn.The Only good thing is I told the wife I cant use my truck until the steel spacers come so she has to drive me to and from the bar.

Very nice! I am contemplating either aftermarket 20" rims for my Excursion or factory 20's. The fact that I would need the spacers adds another $600 to the equation so aftermarket might be the way to go. I do like the look of the factory 20's, not to mention they are forged aluminum vs. cast which is what most aftermarket wheels are. (Forged aftermarket wheel = serious $$)

How much did you pay for the factory 20's?

2002 7.3L Excursion Limited 4x4
- 2" lift (F350 leafs front & back)
- Lightforce 240's and 170's, LED taillights
- Edge Evolution Monitor
- Tymar Intake
- Coolant filter, ELC, 203* T-stat and billet aluminum housing, dual alt upper rad hose
- Riff Raff boots
- PHP Chip (Stock, 80DD, 100Race, Whisper Mode, 80Tow, Smoke Show)
- Hellwig rear sway bar
- Bilsteins 5100's
- LT275/65R20 Goodyear Duratrac's
- 20" F250 King Ranch Wheels
- 2" Fred Goeske steel wheel adapters

Thanks,The 20" wheels ride smooth too.I think alot better then my 16" wheels and speedo is still correct or very close.I checked my speedo by going thru those school zones with the radar speed signs.I know its not like I went from 16" wheels too 44 mudders but I still checked anyway.I just dont want to drive much until i get the steel space adapters.But I'm very happy with the wheel choice.Once I'm done with the rims I have the 2011 nose and bumper ready to install but money is tight to have it painted it to match the rest of the truck.Also with winters coming I might wait until spring because from what i read Its gonna be alittle involved lining and mounting everything up.I'll have pics of that when I start and hopefully when and if I finish also.

The 20" factory wheels are really nice and smooth.I love them.If you do choice to mount them just dont make my mistake by buying the cheap aluminum spacers.Do it right with the steel ones.If not I'll sell you my aluminum ones as soon as my steel ones come in.Also dont forget to get a 20" factory spare also incase of a flat.Thanks for the comments.Happy turkey day!
