2008 wheels

I put my factory 18" wheels on a 2007 PS our company owns. The 2008 wheels have about 6" of backspace which were fine on the 2007; they should work on a 2005 with coil front springs.

Is it possible to get these to fit my 2000? I love the factory 18 inch polished bullet hole wheels.

2008 wheels

The 2008 wheels will only fit on 2005 and newer. Backspace issue as the coil spring trucks have to have a positive offset wheel. I had 10" Welds on my 2000, they only had 4 1/2" of backspace (lots of dish) whereas the wheels I put on my 2008 are 9" wide with 5" of backspace (the factory wheels have 6" of backspace-the inside of the wheel would rub on things on a pre-2005 truck).

I suppose, although I have never been a fan of wheel spacers. The problem with spacers is that the wheel is still just as wide as before, it just now sticks out further.

I know, and it also puts more stress on the wheel bearings when it sticks out farther.
