They're the same bolt pattern, but the offset on the 05-07's is different than the 99-04. The axles are wider on the 05-07's, so the wheels are shallower to accommodate this.

I believe so. In 05 when Ford went to the coil springs in the front and the larger brakes, it changed the width of the front ends. They should fit, alot of guys run the 05-07 wheels on the 99-04's, but they look goofy, IMO. My 04 has the factory 18's and they're much deeper than the newer style 18's and 20's.

Seems like the general consensus is to not use spacers if at all possible. It puts alot of strain on your wheel studs and you'll probably end up breaking them off down the road. I'm sure someone else with more know-how will chime in. I've never had any need or desire to use anything different than spec. Might snatch the set up anyways and turn a dime on them? Alot of people would like to have those 20's! Then you could find some that are better suited for your truck.

2" spacers are what is needed to make them fit properly and not rub the leaf springs.
