    I'm finally getting started on my '41 now that the snow is gone. I've got a factory 9ft bed from a '52 GMC, but....with the dually wheels, the bed is about 2" too wide. I really don't want to cut this up if I don't have to. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find 2" wheel spacers for a 10 x 7.25 bolt pattern? If I add the 2" to each side, that will still give me 1" between the bed and the tires. That should be plenty since I'm running 8.25-20 tires on the rear and these puppies don't flex much (if any). If I can't find any, I will be looking for a good machine shop (or someone with the capability in their shop) to make 2 for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    These will likely need to be made. What others seem to be missing is that this is a TEN LUG on 7-1/4" pattern.

    As far as I know, there is no current application for this pattern, and thus, no current demand.

    The pattern was last used almost a decade ago, and just on the Chevy/GMC 3500HD. Not super common spacer territory.
