Yes, all trucks will need tie rod ends or full replacement tie rods with heim ends to clear the brake rotors.

You will need to use the included 7mm billet spacers with the beadlock style wheels.

Normally, large spacers are not recommended. However, a 7mm spacer is very small and won't cause any issues. Even high-end sports cars including the 911 have 5mm and 7mm spacers available from the factory. As long as the lugs are torque properly, there will not be any wheel damage.

As far as extra stress, with the added 7mm spacer, it effectively adjusts the wheel offset from +34 to +27 which is still less than most aftermarket wheels.

If you'd like us to send you a quote for the upgrade, please let me know!

We test fit the wheels today!

The 17" OEM beadlock wheels fit WITH the included 7mm spacer. They will not fit the wheel without the spaces.

The non-beadlock 17" OEM wheel does fit without the spacer.
