i think spidertrax are the best. i want to get a set someday but i have also heard that some tire companys wont put tires on for you if you have wheel spacers and also wont garauntee the tire or rotate them. dont know if that is 100% true but just somethin i have heard

I dont think anyone makes a 2.5" wheel spacer. But companies do make 2.5" shock/coil spacers for lifting the vehicle.

Correct... The max size wheel spacer I'd run is a 1.25'' Spidertrax.

If I use 1.25" wheel spacers and a 2.5" front coil spacer from Daystar on my '06 Taco PreRunner, would 285/70R17 tires clear on my stock wheels?
