What size spacer did you actually use? That's a pretty wide tire.

i could have got away with a 3/4 spacer but than i would have had to put in longer studs.
i did not want the sandwitch style spacers i have used them in the past and had them sheer off lug studs.i could not get the bolt on one's in 3/4 the smallest i could get was 1 inch so i went with them

The wheels look good, Mike.
It looks like you blacked out the backside of the rims.
I always liked the look of the S-10 Blazer center caps on those wheels. I saw a '56 Chevy that had a set of those on it painted body color, which happened to be aqua, and he had the S-10 center caps.
It looked really good, too.

There are 5 little tab that need to be cut off on the back side to get them to sit close enough to the wheel to get the lug caps on but after you grind or cut them off the fit perfect
