What size wheel spacers do I need?

I bought a set of 20" Wheels off of a 2009 Lariat (thanks Surveyingdawg) to put on my 03 Excursion. Can 1.5" wheel spacers work or do I need 2" to keep the tires from rubbing.

2" spacers will work without needing to cut off your existing wheel studs but will result it the wheel moving out more as this will change the back space to 3.75"..rather than 4.5" thats stock.

We can get you 1.25" spacers but you will have to trim the studs shorter. But the back space with then be 4.5" and the rim will set like factory.

Either way we have Hub-wheel centric 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 .

I'd like to not have to trim the studs, in case I go with a wider wheel and tire combo down the road.

Depends on the width of the rim...

2" spacers will work without needing to cut off your existing wheel studs but will result it the wheel moving out more as this will change the back space to 3.75"..rather than 4.5" thats stock.

so stock 8" wide '05 up rim is 1" wider than the stock 7" Exc rim plus .75" from the spacer = 1.75" further than stock.
