Dodge b100 wheels headache.

I purchased new wheels & tires for the dodge through a local place. They told me I needed a spacer for my front wheels-approx 10 mm-

So I was told to look for “hub centric spacer” but it looks like there is more to this, as I can’t seem to narrow down what I should buy by just a reference of my vehicle year, etc.

I was told there is currently a spacer on there, that has to large of lug bolts to fit my new wheels.

So, I’m just hoping someone has an idea of what the hub size is need to look for in a spacer, or even a suggestion on where to buy one would be appreciated. My repair manual for the vehicle shows the 5x4.5 lug pattern and a 1/2-20 stud size-although it did not list stud length, and I’m assuming I’ll need the extra 10mm on stud length when I put a spacer in.

I’d really appreciate any input. I saw the wheels sitting at the shop and got awful anxious to get them on the van. Really got the fingers crossed I can figure this out before nationals.

Thanks!

1 spacer on the ft is bad enough but 2 spacers NEVER ... I would buy the right rims with the correct offset.


Buy it right or buy it twice ...

I think there is a misunderstanding-I would not use 2 spacers, as the ones currently on the vehicle will not fit the wheels im looking to mount-lug size too large-current spacer is not a simple slip on over lugs, but bolts to the hub on the stock studs, and has a larger diameter stud coming out of it, in the same bolt pattern. I would not be stacking spacers.

Upon further investigation. The van was running a oversized stud that threads onto the stock stud, and pushed the wheel out approx 1/2”. Ive never seen such a thing. But this is my first project car. I’ve ordered the appropriate spacers & longer threaded studs (I think) after tons of headache and internet BS. I hate using the computer for stuff like this, but here I am, with no better resource. Guess I should have had a car guy as a relative or friend!

You are correct on the stock stats. The problem may be that Ford has the same lug pattern and the center hole is smaller than the Dodge. I have spacers on the rear of my van but not the front. I wish you the best of luck with the ones you are fitting on there.

It sounds like you have wheel adapters on there? Do you know why you'd need a wheel spacer to begin with? Can you provide more info on the wheels you purchased?

I have 2" spacers on the rear to make to look wider. My wheels are Intro wheels which are custom made to each application
