You could buy them, but I don't think they'd fit on the front. Price for (4) 20x10 would be $980 in chrome or $625 in grey or black.

I'm watching also.

I may get in line for another set of grey 20's.
I'm not doing anything,... until I see a set bolted on the 1.25" rotors.

Re: Boss 338 Wheels **GROUP BUY**

I'm interested in buying a set, but would like to know if they ever corrected the fitment problem with the bearing hub?

That was the entire purpose of the revision that we've all been waiting for. Heaven help us (and AEW!) if it's still not right!

From AEW's blog (courtesy of HarrolLS1):

Update on the Boss 338

The long awaited re worked 338 for the GM products 5on5 and 5on4.75 are here and ready to hit the field.
American Eagle believes has corrected the issued with the grease cap clearance and the wheels will be available to our customers in just over a week’s time. The first release will be the in the 20 inch sizes. 18 inch parts should not be too far behind. For those loyal customers of the American eagle wheel lines, we thank you for your patients’ and hope that you will enjoy the Boss 338s for many years to come. Thank you for Buying American Eagle, Thank you for buying American.

Re: Boss 338 Wheels **GROUP BUY**

VERY interested in this group buy. I was planning on running 20" Dodge steelies but this deal is just too good to pass up!

Add my name to the list - (2)20x8.5 and (2)20x10 Grey Centers.

1. How many offsets are available and which is optimal for our trucks?
3. How do we make payment? checkout is not working

Hey Guys,

Mine will be in my hands on the 24th and I will do a writeup with pics while fitting them on the truck the same day.

If someone else gets theirs before me please do the same, the suspense is killing me

Might want to wait until Monday. He was going to check the actual shipping costs with AEW then, so things may not be 100% right with the online ordering system yet.

You don't have any real choices in offset -- decide on the diameter and width you want and that's it. From what I've read, the 8.5" width in either the 18" or 20" rims is right for the front (or all four corners) while the 18x9.5" or 20x10" is right for the rear with the addition of spacers, depending on your application. I could be wrong; this is just based on what I've read and not any firsthand experience.

See above for answers to both questions.

Only one offset.
5.25" BS up front
6.225" BS rear.
I assume almost everyone will have to use some type of spacer on the rear. (on the 67-72 trucks) Also the 67-70 and 71-72 will require different spacers due to the different rearend width.

You guys crack me up. Ha.

I have some "Boss 338 Snakeoil" for sale. Anybody interested? Ha.

Actually, good luck with this group buy.
I'm just afraid some people will be disappointed if there is fitment problems.
Also,... who's responsible if there is damage during shipping? AEW?

Re: Boss 338 Wheels **GROUP BUY**

Wow... a bunch of you guys are hot for these things.

What about the rear back-spacing for the 20's? Is everyone considering the cost of the adapters you'll need to run the 20x10's on the 6x-87 GM trucks (the wheels have seemingly correct offset for 88-98's, but not the pre-88's)? The 18x9.5's BS looks about right; too bad they don't offer the same BS in the 20x10's.

I paid about $150 for a set (2) of 1" adapters years ago. I'm not sure what they go for these days or if the 1" variety is even still available in 5x5 pattern.

Man, what a great deal! If I had something to put them on, I'd be all over it. I'd almost pick up a set for some to be determined ride in the future. I paid WAY WAY more for my wheels....duh!
