Reason i ask is my steel rims have a wobble to them , i run 2.5 spacers and there's plenty of stud left ..... So can i run 6 aluminum wheels and trash my inners ? Im tired of them shaking :banghead:

Don't see why not I have all alum 19.5 wheels on my 05 family hauler. Did that to save on rotating mass. And so I can rotate the rear tires around for even wear.

The alum is FAR thicker than the steel. You can run longer studs. I've also read where you would need to unbolt them a few times a year, something about the aluminum fusing together?

They start to have a chemical reaction to the steel hubs and wheel studs. To battle that I put anti-seize compound on the hubs and wheel studs and aliitle between the rear wheels. On my 05 wheels. My next set for my 01 I'm having them powder coated black.
