I want my wheels to stick out

Ok so I want my wheels to stick out for a more aggresive look. I dont want to get new wheels with a different back spacing, $$$$$$. I dont do alot of off-roading and am just lookin for the look. I have 265/75 16 with (stock wheels). will a 1.25 back spacing give me that look?

Im running wheel spacers for the time being, have put 30k on the truck with no problems. They help cornering and look great, Ill probably take them off when I get new wheels and tires though.

Wheel Adapter/spacers FTW!

I just installed my Spidertrax tonight and am very happy with the product and the resulting look. They were so neat in their bright blue glory I felt bad hiding them behind my wheel. Test drive resulted in the truck feeling more stable at speed and cornering a little flatter (nice since I have the Sport). If you buy from 4WheelParts you can nab the Spidertrax for 10% off which based on my searching is probably the best price you will find, and there is free shipping.

Oh, and let me save you 1000's of threads and searching........Spidertrax are the best/most popular. Yes they are more expensive but the going opinion is that they are worth it! Having now held them in my hand and bolted them on, I would buy them again without hesitation.

x2...wheel spacers. Just remember that you'll be placing more load on the axle, suspension, and CV joints because of the increased leverage. Also, they may be illegal in some states if they extend beyond the fender flares.

Yeah I know I was just giving my specs to give him an idea of what offset and BS he would need to stick the tires out.
