Exclamation 05+ offset wheels versus 99-04 offset

I know that you can run factory 05+ 20's on a 99-04 but 2" hubcentric spacers are needed for the wheels to fit correctly under the wheel well and to give the tire enough space to not rub on the leaf springs. But I have researched a lot and can't seem to find a decent deal.


My question is:


Do any of you guys know where to get good spacers for less than $600 a set of 4 and that don't weigh 30lbs a piece?? I've been told the ebay ones are junk and will break, is it positively necessary to buy the steel spacers? Again, where to look to pick up a set for a good price, don't care it they are used.

Thanks

yeah, I'm leaning towards aftermarket wheels now b/c the price of spacers and stock 20 wheels and tires will be close to the same....yeah I don't like the look of the new wheels without spacers, they sit too far in on the trucks that I've seen and look a little funny..IMO

I am baffled by this, I think your truck looks great but when I test fit these wheels the other day, they looked no where near how they do in your pictures.



I am starting to think that it might just be your tires, the tires I had on the wheels when I test fit were 275/60/20s. However when you do the math, and compare these to your 305s your only gaining about .6" on each side 1.2" total. That cant possibily acount for the difference... I am kicking myself for not taking photos with the wheels on my truck, it was honestly laughable.
