No Spacer, No Problem

December 29th, 2009

Where can I get better wheels for my dually? Ideally, I’d like wheels that do not require spacers to fit.

We’re aware that Alcoa manufactures replacement wheels, but we’re not sure what sizes are available. Another source would be Budnik (714-892-1932; www.budnik.com). We have 19.5-inch Brentz Wheels on our project dually. They are pricy, but we love the look, and no spacers were required. We believe Brentz (972-241-7373) now makes billet wheels up to 22 inches for dually use-check the website (www.brentzwheels.com) for the latest sizes.

Don’t forget you’ll need compatible tires, depending on the loads you carry. If you just go with passenger-car tires for the sake of fitment, you will compromise the hauling capacity. We’re running 225×70 Toyo Hyparadials, which may be stiff when the bed is empty, but can definitely handle the weight.
