Cool Installed 2nd gen wheels

I found a steal on craigslist and needed a new set all around anyways. Instead of grinding down the brake bolt, I just put a 1/4" spacer on the fronts to clear. They stick out more than I would like, but overall I am happy with the "updated" look.

They are pretty wide on the front but I don't think the 1/4" spacer makes that much difference, the 15x8 wheels are just plain wide to begin with. That said, how is the handling with the track that wide now?

It doesn't look bad but the difference between front and rear is pretty obvious. If it's ok with you though who cars, you're the owner, you're the one who drives it!

I might install wider spacers in the rear to even them out a little, but this truck is just an extra hauler and I only drive it less than a hand full of times each month.
