    Test-mounting my 10" rims I see that the weight's on the back of the rim will thouch the knuckle on the steering stabilizer rod. Will adding 6 big washers kill me or my truck?

    Second, I ordered a set of spacer's for the rear. Anything to worry about running these?

    You can get spacer plates at some auto parts stores. They are about 1/4 inch thick. Dont know if that is enough to clear your stabilizer rod or not, but they are cheap and safe.
    Dont know much about rear spacers, sorry.

    You will be fine with the washers, my friend did this when he mounted 15" wheels on his 8 lug 44...

    About the wheels spacers, I dont know, I have always been told that they are unsafe, but I see alot of people runnning them.

    Thanks fellow K5'rs. I dont see washers making it much diffrent than stock. The rims will be moved out about a fingernail. The contact area will be suficent.. I think.

    Think I'l go for it.
    Havent recived the spacers for the rear yet. Think they are bolted to the existing lug bolts, and equipt with new bolts on the outside of that. Like you say, not street legal. But its either that or running the 10" rims in the back and 8" upp front.
