Spacers move the wheel out farther. You should ese longer studs.

Adapters are for using F*rd wheels on a Dodge. (sorry couldn't use the F word)

Depends how wide you want to go....

if your staying with stock wheels, then you need spacers and wider tires wouldnt hurt...

if you get aftermarket wheels, buy wheels with a ridiculous offset lol

probably illegal though....so it depends on how much the laws are enforced...you probably wont be bothered, however most places require that tires be covered by a fender with only a certain % of the tire able to be shown....

the look doesnt dew it for me but its all about what you like on your truck!

You can get a wheel with a different backspacing to push them out some. Then, add a set of flares...looks beefy.

Or, if you want to stick with your stockers, get some spacers.
