Rear spacer help

So I have a new truck I'm working on and I have a set of 24s on it with a steel work bed I just don't like how inset the rear tires are I love the way they look I just want to space them out. So does anyone know the best safest spacers I can use to get them out 1 maybe 2 inches and what is best alluminum or steel

have to have spacers made for that distance, the best way would be to make spacers that bolt to your existing wheel studs then have a wheel stud through them in between the existing ones to attach the wheel. Have made things like this to offset drag wheels but not to this extreme usually around 3/4 of an inch mabye an inch at most
(spacer bolts to hub, has new wheel studs pressed into spacer to accept outer wheel)
WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY)

Wheeladapters.com call fred goetzke. He makes 2" spacers out of steel not aluminum. Pricey but the safest. 370/pair. You can get t6 aluminum spacers for probably 200 a pair.

These are the aluminum ones that I posted. I've used them in the past. American made, very good quality.

Yea I have seen these rims on a few diesel trucks around here I wish they were 22s so I could get some more aggressive tires cheaper because 35s for 24s are pricey

Sorry for bringing this post back up but what kind of load can these aluminium spacers handle? It looks like $380 for all 4.

As for a real number I'm not sure. You're best bet is to call and ask, but in reality they will hold more than the stock cast aluminum wheels. Their website appears to be half broken at this moment... must be an update the searches arent working for me
