Well the duals on my rig are touching, and Iv heard that that will cause the bearing to push itself out. What do I need to do about this, I cant use wheel spacers cause that will throw off the balance of the axle and cause it to stap, bein that all the weight would transfer outward.:popcorn:

If you love your truck you'll get the spacers. they may be okay when empty but put a load on them and there likely to blow out or even burn. The stud just hold your wheels in place, its the pressure between the mating surfaces of the wheels and center bore of the wheel matched to the axle housing that holds the weight.

tires have some squat in the sidewalls, when you add a load / a few dips in the pavement it may become a problem. ive ran them as close as 1/2" when loaded pumped to max psi and havnt had any problems with 8,000lb trailer

Remember our dually rims have centering coins on them. Be sure the spacer is opened up to clear the coins or it will cause problems.
