    If those wheels are not hub centric, then you'll need something like this. Mine weren't, so this is what I needed. My wheels have the same overall specs as your wheels.

    You would also need the lug spline key.

    Would it make a big difference if its Hub Centric or not? What does that really mean, and ok thanks so i would just need 24 of those and the tool correct. Did you have any problems with rubbing on your break caliber. Do you think i will need tire spacers

    Ok, so the factory wheels are hub centric. This means that the center of the wheel mounts perfectly to the hub of the truck. The small hollow circle in the center of the wheel fits over the center circular hub in the center of the brake rotor or drum.

    A non hub centric wheel has a larger hole in the center of the wheel that does not match the factory hub.

    This means that the wheel could be mounted at an offset and not spin correctly. If you were to spin it, it would wobble up down and side to side.

    To make sure this doesn't happen, you use a specific lug nut, which is those lugs nuts in that link. They have a sleeve that fits into the stud holes of the wheel and align the wheel to the mounting surface. If you use the factory nuts you may not get a correct mount.

    My wheels fit fine over the calipers. Some 16" wheels don't.
