8 Lug 20 Inch Steelies

Well, I've been looking for some these for a while. Detroit Steel just started making them. I ordered some 20X9s and will post up some pictures here in 3 to 3.5 weeks when they come in.

They also come in 22 inch, but you can't get the beauty rings with the 22s.

They will drill, tap and mount clips so you can use the stock cap. I'm going with 2003ish cap shown in the pic. Here are some pics from Detroit Steel and Penn C10.

Thanks for the reply. Those 2003 caps look great on them.

Re: 8 Lug 20 Inch Steelies

What kind of back spacing did you get? I'm debating whether I should get those or waiting for artillery style. For those '03 style caps you just need the threaded lug nuts right?

Good luck to you, too. If you would, post some pics here so we can compare the 1/2 inch.

Also, what tires are you going to run?

Will do. I'm thinking 255/40 Or 255/45. Don't want the tire bulging out to much. I ordered them raw because I'm wanting to get them powder coated red and putting those 03 style center caps. I ordered the trim rings as well.
