If I was to buy some wheel spacers, would I need to somehow extend my bolt pattern to so I can get my lugs on?

i saw some spacers that bold up to your already exsistant studs, and then in between each they had a stud of ther own to bolt your tires directly on the spacer... i question the integrity and strength of the whole idea, but then again thats prolly what im getting

No. Wheel spacers have two patterns. One for your lug nuts and the other has the studs for your wheel.

some do.

wheel spacers suck.

wheel ADAPTERS bolt on to your studs and have a new set to bolt your wheel onto. some can convert the bolt pattern some dont.

Wheel Adaptors are the ones you want not spacers that just slip over you existing studs. 1.5 inch thick aluminum wheel adaptors that bolt to my studs and then have studs of their own that I bolt my wheels onto have survived everything from long road to the gnarliest trails around for the past 4 years. So, I think you can trust them to last on your rig.
