The bolt pattern is the same. But the backspacing is way different. You'd have to run like 2" spacers to have them stick out the same as stock.

If you do, don't buy cheap adapter/spacers. Call Fred Goeske, they aren't cheap, but he will guarantee them and you won't regret it. WheelAdapter.com is your number one source for wheel adapters, wheel spacers, used wheels, and wheel studs.

inccorect, they stick out jsut as normal on mine, ive fought with many ppl on here and won everytime.

they look normal, they will rub your springs due to the rims back spacing but dont sit way in, i run a 305-55 with no issues

Well I knew you needed spacers for something but I would take 03's word. He's knowledgable and is running them so he would know. So I guess it's optional to run spacers then.

IMO..Not a option as the wheel is 1.5" closer to the spring severely limiting your turning radius...we have spacers..

These are U.S. Alcoa 6061t6 billet aluminum, Lifetime warrentee, hub-centric and wheel-centric The spacers are roughly 3-5 times stronger than the Ford cast 20" wheels .

Hows it not an option Cary? i pull trailer i do everything with mine, you get way more then 3/4 lock with zero issues, again another person is arguing.

ITs been done, its done, and they work fine, and im running a way bigger tire then the 265 stockers. If they were such a huge problem i wouldnt have them on the truck.

Spacers can be unreliable, i work in a shop day in and day out, ive seen spacers break, crack, etc, i wouldnt run them.

Loosing 25% of your turn radius to me isn't a option...thats the difference in needing 3 lanes to flip a U turn and 4 lanes...

Can you do it sure..if you don't care that you loose functionality.

There a tank to begin with.

Point is there functional, they work, with minor issues.

up to the OP on what he wants to do.

IMO dont run spacers. as i stated above.

The right way, break down and swap in a new front end. 05 up.

Well it sounds possible but if the OP is like me loosing 25% is a bigger difference when running a cclb rather than an ecsb. In your case it might not be a big deal. But big trucks need all the help they can get when turning and parking. so if it was me I would be running spacers based off the information you and CT have given me.

So OP you have the info now clearly you just have to make a decision based on your needs
