  1. American eagle has taken into consideration all of the comments that had been posted. we are now working on some changes that we feel will help our customers overcome some of the clearance issues they have been having. I will update you as soon as I hear what changes are being made.

  2. You should also consider different backspacing options to make these a true bolt-on application for pre-'88 GM trucks. As it is, beyond the ongoing hub clearance issues on the front, in the rear the 20x8.5 and 20x10 rims need about a 1" spacer to fit properly in the rear, at least for '68-87 Chevy and GMC 2WD trucks.

  3. Great lookin' stuff guys! We'd love to include info on your products in our car show goodie bags. Drop us a note at if you would like to send us printed info.
