Are the spacers working good for you guys??
Have you had any problems with them?
Do you guys recommend them?

I am thinking in installing 1.5" spacers on my truck!!!

I have 285/70/17 tires on the sport 17'' rims. I went with 1 1/2'' adapters. I had to cut a little of the plastic wheel well in front of the wheel. Now I don't have rubbing any where.

Thanks..

You're saying that you had to cut a little of the plastic wheel well in front of the wheel?? Sorry but I dont know what plastic wheel are you talking about, and it seems that I might have to cut that too!! Do you mind if you explain to me again!! I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

I have a 2000 tacoma and I want to get a 3in lift. I plan on running 33's or 285 70 15 BF A/T's. I heard that I would have no trouble clearing or rubbing without spacers. Is there something that I was confused about? Does it make a difference that you guys have bigger rims than I do?

You will need some wheel spacers if you want to put the stock wheels.
And you probably might have to do some minor trimming to fit that tire size in there!!!

remember ive got my 17" original rims the spacer is a 1" spacer i did not had to buy anything else the wheel studs are exactly one inch long go to the web page and look for the spacers so you can see why are they diferrent from other spacers . http://www.extremetrucktoys.com)
