I know the bolt pattern is different, but I like the polished 18" 2011 wheels. I've been looking for a set for my 2008 2500 and was going to get wheels adapters. The adapters I have seen on line are 1 1/2" thick. The off set of the 2011 wheels are +44 and I think my wheels are +28. I never used adapters, any insight? Thx, Paul

Yes. The 2011 wheels are 8 on 180mm and everything before then is 8 on 6.5".

The key to the adapters is making sure its bolted on properly and sits flush to the rotor drum. After snapping a set and loosing a wheel at speed I found that they do require a bit of maintenance and should be inspected and retorqued if necessary. The only other tip would be to watch turning clearance after the adapters are installed and be careful with significantly large tires and adapters.

Good luck and hope this helps.
