I want to widen my truck's stance a bit without having to lay out the coin for some new wheels. What's you guys' opinions on these?

Just in case the link doesn't work for some of you, the Ebay item number is: 281048878596
The way I see it, it's a cheap way to get the look I want. What do you think?

I would steer clear from cheap ones. A good set will run you about $65 a piece.
Reason I say that is because the cheaper metals can* cause issues. A buddy of mine had those on his old camaro and he ended up cracking one.

yes, spend a little extra for the good metal and some sort of warranty on the parts.
but overall, they will widen the stance of you vehicle.

Do you have a reputable tuner/mod store/garage in your area? For my area we have "Nextmod Markham" any place like that will be able to accomodate your request and have good parts available to them

Along with the quality advice above, if, or when you do install, make sure the wheel studs are long enough that the lug nuts fully engage the threads. Consider also the fact that you are adding leverage to the wheel bearings and changing the scrub radius in the steering geometry. You will increase bump steer as well. If you drive your truck hard, jump, or four wheel it, I would leave it alone. If you just want the look and don't really care about decreasing performance, go for it.
