For the amount of money that you would spend on good steel adapters, you could buy those wheels in an 8x170 pattern. Also, however thick any spacer is will push the tires out that far.

I would not chance it. It isn't just about adapting lug pattern but also about transferring the load. Your truck's stock wheels are hubcentric and chances are most wheel adapters won't be.
Food for thought

If you can get a set of quality adapters and reach lugs it will be fine. The Alcoa Billet adapters are stronger than you think. They will be EXPENSIVE though.

not worth the coin IMHO and IIRC the minimum for an adapter is 2 or 2.5 and you still need to grind of some of the stock studs

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

I know this thread is old. If you run an adapter with two sets of studs, facing opposite of each other you can run a much thinner spacer. My adapters are .850 thick. Think outside the box.
