Spacer Between Dually Wheels

Swapping my crew cab short bed into a short bed dually. Accumulated all the parts needed except I've run into a problem. I got 295/75/17s on a steal of a price. The rears are going to touch without a spacer. I ordered a set of two 2" wheel spacers

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?

If you are using the factory wheels those spacers won't work because they aren't hub centric and the factory wheels are. You will get vibrations since there will be no way to center the wheel on the hub.

Wouldn't theoretically the wheel spacer it self be centered on hub along with the inner wheel, then using the acorn lugnuts the outer wheel be centered on the spacer?

Theoretically yes, until the spacer theoretically shifts and you have a vibration or break a lug stud.

Do you know of a good set of 8x200 hubcentric spacers? Preferably 2" thickness?

With a little searching around I was able to find these.

These would be the correct hub cenctric spacers right?

Little late to the party but it can easily be done. Now i have lug centric wheels with acorn lugs on wheel adapter usa 2'' spacers. 285/75/16 Bridgestone Duelers on Pro Comp wheels. Rides great and looks even better IMO.

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.
