correct. The non hub centrics from that guy on ebay work great. Think they are 30mm spacers. We have freestyles on my sons 83.

got to let em do what they want with their own trucks. I had enough trouble getting Trey to stick with trident green. In the end what won was the amount of work involved in changing the color.

I am using boost on my 83. It bolted on but I could tell that I will need to grind off some material on the back of the wheels for clearance. I did not use any spacers.

Thanks for the picture, looks like with the spacer I would be able to have the center caps in.

I understand the desire for keeping the stock look, but I'm not really a fan of the plain steel wheels. We'll see though.

Bill,

That's correct, the wheel caps will NOT fit without the spacers.

I don't think the truck looks "funny". ( I'm biased)

Will we have to replace the wheel studs when using spacers?

Nope, just straight bolt-on (don't forget loctite) and you can run center caps. Alloys will fit on the rear axle of an older truck fine but you just can't run the center caps without spacers.

I don't think it looks funny and gives the truck a nice 'updated' look if that's what your going for. I'm going that direction with my 84' so I went with alloys

I think they look just fine with alloys, I think the difference is some folks are purists when it comes to redoing things on these.

A set of white Wolfs would look sick with the trident green. They are 6.5" wide so you can run up to a 285 tire without issue.

Or if you want bigger tires the Disco steelies look great too. I am running them on my NAS 90.

Can understand you don't like the stock skinny steelies but Wolfs and the Disco spares might have a better look for you.

Funny I like the stripes. I know what you mean though it's all a balance act with updates and keeping an old look at the same time. I do want to keep the galv. cappings though. I might see if anyone nearby has the disco steel spare to see what it would look like on it. I don't want to run wider tires, I'm actually planning 235/85 for it. The plain steel wheels are just that plain. The wolfs look cool they are just to much money for a steel wheel lol.

Don't forget to remove the lock washer that may be on your earlier drive flange bolts and replace them with loctite. That will get an extra 2 or 3 mm of clearance for the alloys. Another option would be to use alloys like the Terrafirma alloys. They have a couple of options and have the same wide opening that steels do.

I guess I don't see enough differences between the early trucks and the newer ones to notice them looking funny. I have a set of adapters and freestyles in the back of my 110 tht are just waiting for tires to ship.
