New wheels finally...

Did the 16x10 front conversion. I love it!! ION 171 front and 167 rears. Bigger holes than the eagle.

I have to do some cutting on the front center caps to put them on. Or just leave them off and run my spikes. Not sure yet. Tryin to feel it out. Have to trim the valance a little from rubbing. That's nothing.

I'm not a huge fan of extended cabs like that, but that truck is sick! Nice work!

The matching holes in the wheels is a plus. I like this look without the dually spacers upfront.
I put some square tube between the frame and bumper mount for extra clearance. Ditching the center caps was the first thing that I did to mine.

I actually like it better without the caps on. I'll get some button head Allen's to plug the holes off.

Not a bad idea for the bumper!!
I feel this is the way ford should have designed these trucks. Dually adaptors are horrible. Now it looks like a truck!!

Love the truck, did you just remove the dually spacers or did you have to change something?
