Default spacers

hey here is a question i have been pondering..... Already got 30x9.5x15 and really don't wanna shell out the additional dollars for wider tires as mine are still in very good shape and condition. But I was thing about putting spacers on the front and rear to get the wide look. anyone have any oponions about with kind to use?

I don't have any advice on what brand is better than another because I would never use spacers. Reason, they add stress to the bearings causing premature wear. Just my $.02

Spacers are completely fine as long as you don't go too far out. They're no different than adding aftermarket rims with less backspacing, and, with our bolt pattern, they're way better most of the time.

Get them from completevalue on ebay. He makes the best spacers and has great customer service.

Hey Mudsliner nice looking truck. Are they stock rims. If so are the spacers hard to install. I want that look for my truck.

Take your tire off, put the spacer where the tires would go(torque them with the bolts), then reinstall tires as usual.

Mudslinger,
Are you running 30" tires and the spacers. Got any tire rub?

If you buy quality spacers, you won't have to worry about vibration or anything. I've had 4 different sets of spacers (1.25", 1.25", 1.3" and 3"), and haven't had one problem with any of them.
