Factory Caps with Spacers?

I am getting ready to order my spacers from Wheeladaptors.com, but I swear that I read somewhere on here that you have to ask for a certain lug nut size. I have been searching high and low, but I cannot find it. Is this true? I really want the factory caps on for a finished look.

Thanks for the help!

Nothing special here and mine fit . The spacers will come with lugnuts that fit into the spacer for the inner dually wheel . Then you just use the stock lug nuts on the outside . Just give them the year of your truck .

Sorry for the duimb question .. but are you putting the spacers on the rear wheels? Is that to give it a wider look? Can you space the front as well? Thanks. I have a dually as well and would like to beef it up a little.

I am putting them on the rear because I am going to be putting 285's on the wheels. So to keep them from rubbing each other, gotta put the spacers on.

Mike , how wide of spacers on the front ? I was thinking about doing this too but was worried about the extra pressure on the bearing assemblies .
