well doesnt the 05-07 wheels have a more negative offset due to the fact of having a coil front end?? So in that case if they do, you wouldnt need spacers to run them at all

I have been told that spacers put more stress on your bearings and cause them to wear faster. I don't know how much truth is behind it but a few people has told me that so I stay away from them cause I don't want to take a chance but if I'm wrong and someone wants me to correct me I'm always open to be corrected

There's a lot of people running spacers on our trucks. Even the duallies have 2" spacers up front..

I would spend a little extra and get the steel spacers over aluminum though..

I've seen people get the front spacers from duallies and run them all the way around. Just a thought, and it would be a cheaper route.

I actually found a set of wheels at a local place today that I wouldn't need spacers for.

Spaces work with the correct wheel offset. With the wrong offset you will have to much leverage on the bearing from the wheel and it will wear out the bearing faster.
