Are the one ton tie rod ends a tapered bolt?

With the new wheels and a zero offset you will not have to modifiy anything.

So, i know this is an old conversation, however in the last 10 years with all of the vehicles that have been scraped it is harder to find wheels that fit 3/4 ton trucks and original chrome hub caps. I called a lot of salvage yards and friends with different brands of trucks with no luck finding rims that would not hit tie rods ends when turning. The rim I found is from Dexster trailer axles, 16x6, #865 17-153. with a little work i can weld some tabs onto rim to fit center caps. Hopefully helpful for someone down the road.

Why not have a set of wheels made by Wheelsmith or Wheel Vintique?

I had Wheelsmith make a set of rims for my truck and purchased a set of their hubcaps. If you want to use original caps, Wheelsmith will install the necessary clips for you. They'll make them to your specifications regarding backspace, offset, etc.

I have them on my 51 GMC one ton.
