Wheel spacers???

I have some newer style ford oe wheels pictured below. I'm trying to put them on my early 99 superduty. Does anyone know what size spacer and a place to buy them? Thank you.

2" wheel spacer does the trick. I wouldn't put spacers on my truck though.

I have always read spacers are a big no no, and could be very dangerous. That being said many people run them, I wouldn't.

Hub centric and wheel centric are the best. If you buy a quality set, they're stronger than the wheels you're mounting. There's a lot of people running spacers with no issues

We have spacers, these are U.S. Alcoa 6061t6 billet aluminum, Lifetime warrantee, hub-centric and wheel-centric The spacers are roughly 3-5 times stronger than the Ford cast 20" wheels .

2" spacers will work without needing to cut off your existing wheel studs.

PM me if I can help.

so i talked to a few guys that have put some miles on some spacers and they have not had any problems. a few guys pull some good size trailers (which is what i mostly use this truck for to pull a 40' gooseneck race car trailer) and a few actually drag race and tractor pull with their truck. i have about 2k miles on them already with no problems. ill keep this posted if anything occurs.

I put 67k on my ebay spacers and factory 08 20s on my 04 f350. I pulled 8k daily for 3 yrs. No issues. Make sure they are hubcentric 2inch.
