Re: 06 Quigley wheels.

With adapters on the back you will have protruding studs to deal with. You can either cut them off, or drill out the SD wheels to clear the studs. I drilled out my wheels, all 5 of them to clear the studs.

Re: 06 Quigley wheels.

I would not any track width to the semi-float axle. Only use spacers that will keep the new wheel's centerline in the same spot. Read the thread "NOT FUN" for info on that.

Re: 06 Quigley wheels.

Read it. Is the rating for semi-floating axle enough? Does it carry the whole van, or just the back half? My van was badged "Super Duty". I thought all...most.. of these vans were running a spacer in the rear to match widths with the new front ends. Standard quigley procedure. I'll keep the wheel center line where it is now. ETbadgers van looks over, or extra loaded in some photos. Still have not ordered adapters. Thanks, ET.

Re: 06 Quigley wheels.

The new Quigleys use adapters so the F-Series wheels fit. And they place the wheel centerline where it was with the van wheels.

The semi-float axle is rated for 6350 pounds. Adding offset puts more stress on the axle. An SMB or other camper van can easily weigh more than that on the rear axle. Really, you need to weigh your particular van to know for sure, and consider an upgrade if you want to change offset or go to a much larger tire.

Re: 06 Quigley wheels.

Well, I have been looking fspa adapters, but no luck yet. A few outlets have stated they "do not stock those". Not sure what the deal is on this configuration? Will need the lip on the face to center the SD wheels. Thanks, ET.
