One of our fellow members "Twin540" has a set of 20" LML wheels on his 08 D-Max. He probably has more pictures of his truck.

You will need to run adapters to put the 2011+ wheels on our older trucks, since they changed the bolt pattern from 8-6.5 to 8-180. Several people, including myself, bought their adapters from Motor City Bolt On. The adapters I and others used were the 1.5" width ones. With the 1.5", you will need to trim about 1/2" off your factory studs. This is easily accomplished with a "thin" metal grinder wheel mounted on a Makita grinder or similar tool. The four adapters will set you back about $240.00 shipped to your door. As you can see in the photo of my truck and others who have done this conversion, the new factory wheels with the 1.5" width adapters will look factory with the correct offset and your tires will not be sticking out past the wheel well.

Awesome! So the factory LML wheels have a different offset, and therefore wont stick out as much as wheels normally would with 1.5" spacers?

Ive loved the LML factory 20's ever since I first saw them.

As stated above, i would like to see Pics of the new 20" OEM wheels on older LMM trucks such as mine to get an idea what they will look like on my 09 2500HD. Since this is much more then just a wheel swap ie: bolt patterns are different, this is why i started the thread. these wheels on 2010 and older trucks. thanks
