"New" wheels, do I need spacers?

I'm working on a deal for a set of 20" wheels taken off an '06 Lariat. I keep hearing that we need spacers to make them work. If so, how many inches of space do I need? What is a recommended spacer brand? I see them all over Ebay, but I need something solid since I do a lot of towing.

Yes you will. Go check in the Excursion forum, many guys up there have put the newer wheels on their trucks, they will know what size spacer you will need.

If it was me (and I do a lot of towing too), I would not buy 05+ wheels. I don't trust wheel spacers when towing, and I've personally seen wheel spacers sheer off on a Chevy truck.

But that's my opinion on the whole thing.

If you do decide to get the wheels, you'll need about 1.5" of spacing, and get the best spacers you can find.
