Wheel spacer for a dualley?

Does any one make a wheel spacer for a dualley. The tires I want to use are 265/75/16r. I want to get a certain brand/tread and still have my load range E. All the tire places I have talk to have said the back tires will rub. Or has any ever made thier own. Thanks -Trevor

Trust me you need to be very careful with using spacers. One of our members could have been killed on the way to SSS08 due to bad spacers. I suggest you talk to him, his name is Mudrunninpig "Mike" , heck of a nice guy and he will tell you what you need to know. He finally got some quality units made from a guy in CA and he has been real happy with them.

265's will not rub in the back, you dont even have to worry about spacers.

I've seen 265s rub while loaded...unloaded no.

Actually saw a set that the sidewalls had exploded....looked cool, but I can't imagine it was any fun.


High quality hub-centric billet steel spacers are the way to go, IMO.

i just put a set of 265's on mine and i wouldn't even put em on without spacers,let alone tow anything. there was only about 1/2 inch at the most between the sidewal and mounting flange on the wheel. i got a set of 1/2 inch spacers,can't tell you they work great cause i just put em on. if you don't pull anything really heavy you might wanna get some a little narrower to have some more room on the machined part of the hub for the wheel to sit on.

Contact Fred Goeske. (818) 992-5700 He makes custom spacers. A great guy and very knowledgeable. He can machine you anything you want. Please if you go spacers make shure they are hubcentric. I speak from experience. Also make shure the studs being installed are factory grade. Cheap spacers can only cause headaches. And or accidents......

+1 for Fred Goeske. I have his 2" steel spacers on my 00 truck with the 07 20" harley rims, no problems. I think fred uses the oem ford studs with his spacers too.
