From as far as I can tell, you can run them as is, just the wheel will be sucked in a bit. f you run wide tires, you will rub on the leaf springs. You could also get spacers and that will push them out a bit so they will look right (On the pics I have seen they look alright with out spacers) and you can run the wide tires...

I believe the backspacing is a little bit more than an inch deeper on the newer wheels. Don't mark my words on that one because I have never measured.

I'm running LT275/70R18 GY duratrac's on my 18" Incubus Crusher wheels with 5.5" back spacing (pretty much the same as the 05+ wheels) and they do not rub the springs at all. I have about 1/2" of clearance at full lock.
