Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking $1500/ea forged wheels here. Matter of fact, they're all made in China.
They simply are sized correctly from the get-go, as opposed to being a drilled blank
Oh, and FWIW, I bought a set of spacers for the Colorado off Amazon.
They're not hard to find


There seems to be 2 definitions used interchangeably for wheel spacers.

1: Wheel spacers, a small pass through slab of metal that pushes the wheel out slightly (less than 1/2") used to clear calipers and such using existing studs.

2: Wheel spacers (wheel adapters), having a full new set of studs and holes to mount to existing studs and pushes the wheel out 1.25"-2". These can either keep existing hole pattern on second set of studs or change to a new hole pattern.

FWIW the second type of "wheel spacer" (wheel adapter) is readily available for purchase from many places (Amazon included). The first definition of "wheel spacer" is not so easy to find for the twins.

Since I was already using a +6mm wheel offset (about an inch more than stock) it was not to my taste to push the wheel out another minimum of 1.25" making for over 2" farther from where the stock wheel started.

After you get them on post a picture, interested to see them. Are they Hubcentric? Bore size seems to be exact, but with the 6mm spacer will that affect the hubcentricness?

I will post some pics of the spacers and then the wheels with tires mounted.

Wish I would of seen this before I tried to mount everything up. I just put an order in for spacers. I bolted up some washers I had laying around that are 3mm thick and everything cleared so I did mine at 4mm thick. If I knew how thick the wall was on that cross bar of the caliper was I would just knock off the edge of it. What also might work is a brake caliper relocation kit and some larger rotors. Pretty lame they don't just fit without any extra work or money.

Be careful with that. That isnt the intended use for washers. There are a lot of dynamics going on in the wheel area. Not all washers are cut or machined with a high degree of precision. There is a lot of heat build up from brakes, lateral forces from turning, up and down forces from uneven road conditions, etc. This can cause issues (undue stress) with the lug nuts and lug bolts. Abnormal movement from washers can cause the wheel to not spin true, cause small wobbles, shakes, vibrations which could make your truck unsafe and also cause abnormal tire and bearing wear. This also creates a small gap between the back of the wheel and hub face which makes the wheel more unsafe at highway speed. The back of the wheel needs to be mounted to a solid surface.


I'm not trying to be a jerk, but I do want you to be safe and aware of the dangers in modifying your truck in this way. Have fun, but be safe and not a danger to others around you.

Leave nothing stock.

17" 6x120mm ion 134s 6mm offset. DO NOT FIT

So I got my spacers and took it down and got the tires mounted on these wheels. The guy at the tire shop said I should be fine and everything torqued out on the lugs but there wasn't as many threads as he had originally thought. He wants to check them after 50 miles to make sure they stay torqued and I'm like "ok?". These wheels have pretty much been a nightmare but they do look great! Here are some pictures of the spacers and the wheels and tires mounted. IMG_4045.JPGIMG_4050.JPG

We sell ET lugs if you need to grab some extra thread. Honestly, they might be cheaper online after shipping

The lug extends a little deeper into the lug hole grabbing a few extra threads
