    Looking for Idea to replace my FX2 black 20inch rims..

    I am building a Truck,while part of the reason I got the appearance package was the rims,We are installing chevy control arms,spindles,and hubs on the front,and in order to keep the stock rims they would have to drill out the front hubs,which I am not a huge fan of doing that...I do not like the idea of having 6 extra holes next to the studs on my hubs...
    The rear end is being shorten,so the rear hubs could stay ford...Or i can get Chevy axles hubs in the rear as well,and just get all new rims...
    So I would like some Ideas to replace my stock 20 inch rims...
    Its either I drill the frt hubs and so be it, or new rims,and rear axles..Has anyone ever drilled the hubs before,I worry about heat,and getting cracks or maybe its not perfect,and doesn't seat correctly causing issues down the road...
    Here is a picture of my truck if it helps with any ideas...thks..

    I do not mine explaining ...Its the hubs,and spindles ,the rest of the suspension is Custom Built aftermarket..Its the same way every major builder does it when they remove the struts to lower and bag a ford truck,or even a dodge some times depending on the factory set up....When I say Chevy its really just the design LASA...and the bolt pattern...When you go from a strut to a air bag you have to have a place to mount it,and using upper,and lower control arms is the only way. Since ford does not have a hub and spindle that will mount in place of the 09-14 ford spindle hubs the the only choice is to use a Chevy hub that is compatible with the ABS,traction control,and other systems...

    I am still doing some research to make sure everything they are wanting to use is the best way to do what i am wanting to do,so i can use the truck in the way i want to.. I hope my simple explanation helps...Thks for the question...

    If you were Local here in MD I would be really interested in grabbing the stock rims off of you.
