yes they will work,but they will rub on the springs at full lock turn. Only way to correct that is with some 1/4" spacers/adapters

More like a 2" spacer. It will rub the radius arm on your 2wd. If you run them without you should also pay close attention to rubbing the flexible brake line.

if i need all four i will probably pass on the wheels i can get them for $475 and they need two tires then four spacers. i would have $850 in all of it when i could buy some aftermarket ones for that price.

If the wheels come off a 4wd. And they are going on a 2wd. You HAVE to get the Hubcentric spacers. The wheels are centered on the hub. That or you would have to get the wheels counter sunk, and get tapered nuts. The wheels do work without spacers. But they do rub. And looks kinda funny being in so far.

So you think Ford makes a 2wd and a 4wd wheel. You think 2wd trucks are not hubcentric and you should counter sink them. You're an idiot, stop offering advice.

I thought the wheels were allot different on the 05s and up?
Old ones were 8x170 and the new ones were different? Is it ONLY the center that is a different size? And the lugs fit?

Ok keyboard tough guy. I SAID THE SPACERS NEED TO BE HUBCENTRIC. Just did a truck with the same deal. 4wd wheels on a 2wd truck. And theres no way to align the wheel to the spacer. Dip####.

And i believe the only difference is the dually wheels. The lug patter has changed.

2WD and 4WD wheels. Who would have known?

You HAVE to get the Hubcentric spacers. The wheels are centered on the hub.
That's usually what hub centric means

That or you would have to get the wheels counter sunk, and get tapered nuts.
You're not really suggesting he should use lug centric spacer and modify his wheel? Really?

Quality information surrounded by the rest of your BS.

Ok keyboard tough guy.
I'm guessing you're a real life tough guy?

I SAID THE SPACERS NEED TO BE HUBCENTRIC.
followed by this:

So you were doing a truck. That sounds like an awesome modification. 4WD wheels on my 2WD. Does it do anything for the truck,or does it just make you feel tougher? On a scale of 1-10, how hard would you rate this modification? Can you do a write up for those of who just don't get it? Maybe make a video, that would be awesome.

Just went threw this with someone that bought a set of wheels and put them on a 2wd. The spacers that were sold to him done align the wheel to the spacer. You were the one to start running your cock holster. If you already know the answer, why ask the question. Sit behind you keyboard and poke away:poke:

I would just pass on the deal, if it was me. Or you could try to turn a profit off of them if you don'y like them.

can you explain what you mean the spacer wont align to the wheel? Was it not the right bolt pattern or something? Did you use the wrong lug nuts? Or is there something i am missing? Just curious

I joined this thread to state some useful information to the original poster. You changed that with your retarded suggestions that someone may actually follow through with. The only questions I have asked have been to you directly, because of your misinformation. You would do well to stop posting information unless you know it to be a fact.

Do a little more reading and someday you may actually learn something. Start with this thread and maybe you'll learn there is no such thing as a 2WD and 4WD wheel. Your post would have been fine if you stated the need for hub centric spacers, but with all the 2WD/, 4WD and countersinking bull#### in the rest of the post there was a need to make sure the original poster knew what was right and what was wrong. I've got nothing against you, just your misinformation.

I do have one more technical question, if you can handle it. If I'm sitting behind a keyboard being an internet tough guy, poking away, where exactly are you?

The following link provides good information and a hub centric spacer. Once you look at the photos in the link, you'll notice the lip on the spacer that precisely fits the hub of the wheel. With a lug centric spacer, once you space the wheel out more than the depth of that lip you begin to rely on the lugs to center the wheel. Gotti and his buddy used a lug centric spacer. Compound that with a factory wheel that has slightly over sized lug holes and your wheel will quickly be out of alignment to the hub.

Too bad the hubcentric spacers (adapters) to use for this (2") are $640 shipped. They are expensive but you will never have to worry about them or your safety. I just checked on these last week so I could run OEM 20s.

WheelAdapter.com is your number one source for wheel adapters, wheel spacers, used wheels, and wheel studs.


Thats crazy expensive. by the time you get it all set up your at 2k for a set of wheels , tires, and spacers. I was also looking into this and now that I know I think I will just go tires for now and get some A/M wheels later.
