Someone will chime in I'm sure, can't help here, still running the factory wheels. You can always PM some folks you know are running them from their pictures if you don't get a reply. Edited by: srode

I just had a phone call from Greg at Truck Extras an internet company, and he said if your planning on lifting your truck you need to run Velocity XT's not the regular Velocity's. He said the XT's have 4.5'' and the regular ones have 5.14''. This is something I have't heard before.

I would guess you are looking at the Velocity 8's, if so they are 5.14". I was told 4.5" for a lift aswell. I'm running 4.25"

Look up 'performancewheelandtire.com' (I think that is correct. They sell velocities for the best price an know all about them. I paid 189.00 each.

Deadeye thats who Ive been talking to. They are all out of Velocity XT's, which now I know is what I would have to have to get 4.5'' of b.s., the 8's are over 5. So Im still looking.

Depends on the Lift. Do a search on lift on this site. Only those that use spindles need 4.5in or less back spacing. I think someone here is running 6" bs with a lift.
