I would love a wider stance! wheel spacers?

I have been wanting a wider more aggressive stance for my truck. I was looking at wheel spacers for this. but i cant find any photos of anyone with STOCK suspension and wheel spacers? i want them out like 2" on each side. also a wider tire. what are your opinions on this? and does anyone have pictures? i want my stance as WIDE as i can get it.

A buddy of mine has an 08 tundra 4 door with stock wheels and 1 1/4" spidertrax wheel spacers with 285/70 Nitto trail graps. His stance isn't really that much wider. they may sick out past the fender about 3/4". If that helps.

Try long travel. You aren't gonna be able to get a very wide of a stance with wheel spacers, especially if you can't even buy two inch spacers and run them safely.

I've got 1.25 spacers, plenty aggressive for me, get shit thrown all up the side of the truck, haha. the 285's make it look a little further out too.

I'd say go with some Spidertraxx 1.25" wheel spacers.

That will work to but I think the OP is wanting to stick with his stock wheels.

All Pro makes 1.5" & 2" wheel spacers for Tacomas. The 2" is only lug centric though

The long travel comment was sarcasm. The only way he will get a much wider stance, other than 1.25" wheel spacers would be new wheels with a large offset.
