05/06 18" king ranch wheels on a 2004 king ranch?

Will wheels from a 05 king ranch fit on an 04 king ranch?
I've heard the offset is different, and wheel spacers are suggested.
Can anyone confirm please?

I don't want the wheels to hit the leaf springs.

Just my Opinion TKR, but as far as I know, the suspension is all the same on the two years, so I don't see why they wouldn't fit. But I imagine that can be checked at most any tire store.

I've been doing some reading and it looks like the newer wheels will mount closer towards the center of the axle by at least an inch. But I don't know for sure.. and I do-not want to use any wheel spacers. If that is the case I will just buy wheels that fit properly.

From what I gather the 05 and up coil type suspension offers more clearance than the leaf springs so they might have changed the wheel offset. If anyone could confirm any difference in wheel offset it would be appreciated very much.

I havent been able to find any specs on the stock wheels for comparison sake.

All I'd like to do is put 2006 model wheels (no leaf springs) on a 2004 model truck (with leaf springs).

Thanks

Not sure, do you have anyone with an 06 wheel to test fit?

The newer trucks have coil springs, the 04 and earlier trucks have leaf springs. Possible different hubs also, which would require a different wheel offset. Dang I wish I had some technical specs on both wheels.

No I sure don't. The wheels I am looking to buy are online. Regular painted 18" KR wheels off a 05/06 truck.

The bolt pattern is the same but the offset is different on the SRW. the Dually wheels are entirely different pattern from 04 to 05. I believe the offset is like an inch and a quarter but not sure
