    I ordered the wheels from ebay with a 78mm bore....oops
    The hub sticks out ~11mm but I could not bore the wheel out that deep or it would hit the wheel spokes.....so my buddy made spacers from 1/4 aluminum plate....
    [​IMG]
    Then bored out the wheel to 106mm, 6mm deep....giving a total of ~12-13mm depth when the spacer is installed with the 6 mounting screws.

    I did a 3" AAL lift and installed 15mm longer wheel studs to account for the thicker wheels and spacers.

    A bit harder than just a bolt on....but I think it looks good.:D

    Not a fan of 20" wheels, but it don't look bad on your truck. Far more classy than most 20" wheels I see lately.

    Handles better
    Notice a little bit sluggish out of the hole, but not too bad
    Braking feels the same.
    Pulled my 2000+ lb ski and trailer over 400 miles and it had zero problems.
    Wheels and spacers are hub-centric and balanced together, no problems.
    I do have a bit more annoying bump steer than before the lift, I had it aligned the next day.
    Are any correction kits available?
    Maybe drop the center link a little to correct the tie-rod angle.

    You gonna take that off-roading at all? Hope not! What's with the little dent above the rear wheel on the passenger side. Sorry I noticed it.

    Nice set up. I just bought my truck and it had 20 inch rims on it already. Do you have any problmes with rubbing? Mine rub a little when I turn the wheel to the max, but i have learned to live with it.
