John,
What size rims are they? They do look nice! More so, I bet, a nice smooth ride.

They are 19.5's They are pretty smooth and I think the ride will be even better once the bed is completed and installed.

What did you do about the stud size on the front?

Did you use a flange,conical or shank lug nut?

Drilled the hubs for larger studs and went with metric studs front and rear so I could use the GM center caps. I am using latter model plates on the front and 60 degree conical nuts on the rear.The reason for that was on the rear the aluminum rims are so thick plus the thickness
of the plates the studs were to short. I tried to find longer studs but couldn't find any.
