2" wheel spacers?

are these 2 inch wheel spacers dangerous to run? I have always heard the the small spacers that go between the hub and wheel are dangerous but these use 8 lugs to hold the spacer to the hub then 8 to hold the wheel to spacer. Just having a hard time finding the right offset wheel.

What wheels and offset are you wanting?

Quality hub centric and wheel centric spacers are $600.

i wanted 20x12 fuel hostage but the -44 offset will rub my leafs I am running 38.5x14.50, I think with 2" spacers they will stick out too far. If I get the 20x10 -24 offset it would still rub but then I was thinking i could use the spacers and they wouldnt stick out too far. I have a 10.5" lift btw. Any suggestions? Right now I have 20x11 -24 MKW M19's and they rub my leafs. I had 37x12.50's with no rubbing, then got 37x13.50 and they rubbed. Now with the 38.5x14.50 they def are rubbing more. Plus i think it would look better with the wheels sticking out a little more. What offset is everyone running with the big lifts it seems like these are the most negative ones I can find.

Might be cheaper/better to convert to 05+ coil suspension.

Have you tried calling fuel, and seeing if they do custom wheels?

Get a quality set of spacers from Cary or Fred and call it a day. The leaf spring front ends can only accommodate 37's without rubbing. I have deep dish 20x12 and 40x15.50 and i don't rub. I'm running a set of spacers from Cary, hub-centric and wheel-centric

We sell 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



We can get you 1.25-1.5" spacers but you will have to trim the studs shorter. But the back space with then be 4.5" and the rim will set like factory.
