should be the same back spacing but im not suer the only difference will be the lug nut that fit the 04 wont fit the 08 so you will have to get new lug nuts but they should fit take a tape measure and measure from the back of the center of the wheel to the out side of the tire and same on the 08. they should fit

I think the lug nuts will work. I could be wrond but i think its fine thread 03 and up. It would not be the first time i was wrong. Actually,now that i think of it, the rear end in my 01 is out of an 08. Its just fine thread which was on 04 too.

I believe the front axle is wider on the '08+ trucks. Or at least, i've seen someone put stock '08 wheels on an '06, and they were tucked up close the frame and looked odd.

I guess this means that wheels for an '08 have more backspacing than earlier wheels?
