Wheel spacers.

Hello, I am new around the dually scene and powerstroke for that matter. I have a 2003 F350 dually 4x4 and want to put larger tires on it. I can get some new 2 inch spacers for it for $180 but they do not have the lip like the hub centric spacers do. These fit on the truck, just need different lug nuts to make the center cap stay on. Should I buy these or hold out for the hub centric style? What is the difference? Tire wear issues? I did a search but came up still with no true comparison. Any help would be appreciated.

Personally the only spacers i would run are the ones from wheeladapter.com They are hub centric and a very good quality. Last thing you want is your tire falling iff because of a non quality spacer. I run these and have never had a problem with my 37s.

I was hoping to get the Hubcentric spacers but I was in a hurry to get the truck inspected and on the road so I ended up buying the cheap aluminum ones. Havent put many miles on them yet but they seem fine so far.Ibe been checking them regularily tho Im a little scared from all the negative reviews on here.

Mudrunninpig runs a set in the rear and the front from Fred. His spacers are top notch. I have them on the rear and looking to do the front......wheeladapter.com is the only adapter I'd ever run......

running your set up would be really heavy going from 2" spacers to 10 lug adapters then those big wheels. I wouldn't want to chance it. I have had zero problems in 200k miles with freds spacers front and rear.
