That would work if you have lug centric wheels that use the acorn style lug nuts. The factory wheels are hub centric and use flat lug nuts. Unless that has changed on the later model trucks.
I'm using a set of factory 17inch steelies which mount hubcentric. So I'm going to need hubcentric spacers not the lug cenctric. The only question now is which brand would be best suitable. I'd like to go solid steel but cant find any. The best I've seen are these from Bora

Unless anyone else has an suggestions on what brand to run. Shouldve just bought the correct size tire to begin with haha.

Just checked with them. Looks like they're sold out of the hubcentric 8x200 spacers.

Well i'd still give them a call to check on the time frame. I'm not saying brand "X"is better or worse but i wouldn't buy the ones you can get the fastest if they are lesser quality. I'm happy with my WAU spacers and i'd definitely recommend them.

Ended up going with the BORA spacers. So hopefully everything will line up neatly. Thanks for the help and advice though. If I remember I'll take a few pics when it's all together and throw them on here.

There is nothing wrong with aluminum spacers, I have had 2" aluminum spacers on my truck for 3 years. Bora makes good quality spacers, you will be fine with those as long as they are installed properly.

I plan to daily drive and possibly tow a gooseneck 3 or 4 times a year. Anyone have an experience running a spacer like this between the tires?
I'm sorry, but I wouldn't tow a gooseneck, meaning some substantial pin weight, with spacers on a Dually. These trucks are meant to carry weight but by adding spacers you are adding a variable of fit on the hub, the outer rim on the hub, longer studs, acorn nuts.....just doesn't seem like a good decision.

As long as they are good quality spacers and are installed properly they are completely safe to tow and haul with. Mine isn't a dually but I tow and haul all the time with my 2" spacers and I have never had a problem. I inspect them twice a year when I rotate the tires and they are still in good shape after 3 years of use.
