Default 2016 to 2003 SD wheel adapters

So I just found out the hard way that 16' and 03' SD wheels are way different offset. Could have known just by a quick visual comparison but was eager to jump on a craigslist deal that I didn't bother looking. Got them back to shop/installed and obviously they sit further in (would be positive offset?).

Question is, does anyone know the quick math to give me correct adapter size to return the 16' wheels to the proper 03' offset, and which quality adapters are recommended?

I could deal with the weird look of an inset wheel but the front tires rub the frame at close to full turn and my guys that drive the truck are not capable of adjusting their driving style to accommodate.

Sorry to be lazy and look for the easy answer but just wondering if anyone that's already been through it can give solid data. Thanks for any help!

2" spacer is what everyone runs. Idk which brand as I don't have a set. I swapped to 05 suspension under my Ex that I plan to run them on.

I think your " good deal" will be offset by the purchase of good spacers http://www.wheeladapter.com/single_spacers.php

i would relist what you bought unless your hell bent on using them

Yup, 1.65" is the offset difference. 2" works great and you don't need to cut on the stock studs. I've got pics on the tire/wheel thread.

THANKS! Just ordered them from Caleb. Top notch hubcentric product from a knowledgeable owner. He appreciated the nod.

So I finally got my spacers from Caleb. He uses USPS for shipping and apparently it's their fault that the second box with 2 spacers got lost?? Anyway... He tells me grinding the axle mounting ring is generally necessary to fit the spacer over it. I took the axle out and the spacer still wouldn't fit over the axle hub. I would have to grind the hubcentric ring almost completely off to fit which kind of defeats the purpose of getting hubcentric spacers. When I called him, he was already frustrated about the shipping fiasco, not to mention my guys blew a front brake hose on a road trip because we waited so long for spacers and the tire wore a hole in it from rubbing, so he said he NEVER heard of having to grind THAT much off the spacer to fit over rear hub and he would just take them back and refund my money. I said I'm frustrated too, so instead of throwing my money back at me, since you designed and manufacture this product, can you help me figure out why I have the ONLY Super Duty made with a bigger hub diameter???

Sorry for the rant, just wondering if anybody had to grind this much off to fit?

Oh no.. that sucks. What truck and axle is this going on? A 10.25 axle? I've seen/read about guys with issues of spacers that weren't clearanced enough for the floating hub, but I had zero issue over a 10.25.

I posted a pic of my Motorsport Tech BORAs just so you could see them compared to yours. I would have sent the spacers back before getting after the floater with a grinder.
