I do think there would be a problem with the stock studs not being long enough, but as CEMBM1 mentions it should be possible to install longer studs so both dualie wheels could be Alcoa's. Since I have an extra set of Alcoa wheels that were Kodiak "take offs" I have the extra wheels to do it. I'll check with Chevy and see if they would do the work and verify it won't affect any warranty coverage I have on the new chassis. I am interested in the weight reduction aspect only.... every extra pound off in the chassis wheels allows me more weight I can haul in my trailer. Thanks for everyone's feedback.
Well I have first hand experience with Alcoa wheels on my class C... I installed a set of Hot Shot Alcoa`s just for "looks" and was amazed with the ride improvement
100% agreement with Hitech as well. I just did this about 2 months ago. Mostly to eliminate 4 steel wheels with a wobble causing vibrations. I also put on Michelin XPS Ribs and the combo is night and day better than the steel Accuride Wheels and Goodyear Wrangler E tires I replaced. Only 4 wheels and you do not rotate them as they are polished on specific sides.
So I am up to:
