wheel spacers on 285/75 16 ?

Guys running some nitto grapplers 285/75 16 and I want to make them stick out some more and was wondering if adding some spidertrax wheel spacers would be ok and not cause me to have to cut/trim the wells.. FYI my current tires fit just fine with zero rubbing...

Im affraid stepping up to some 305/70 16 would rub a bit?

What are the specs of your current wheels? Width and backspacing.

Snap i figured you would ask that... just picked this truck up and it came with the wheels (mickey thompson classic lock) and tires... is there anyway for me to find out? I dont have a jack on hand that would fit this beast so not just as easy as me removing the wheel to look?

Yes, there should be some stamping on the wheel that says "16x8jj ET0" or something like that. If you post it here we can figure it out. It might be on the back of the wheel.

great i'll have to try and find that out somehow... love to put on some pitbull rockers 33/13.50 to avoid the spacers, but i've been told those would rub ... if i add maybe a 1" bodylift or ( 1" or 2" leveling kit)? ontop of my 3"suspension would they clear then?

I think I posted in your other thread. 13.5s are just waaay too big for this truck IMO. You are going to have to cut a lot.....even to fit 12.5s you are looking at some cutting.

But as far as the wheels, pull one of them off tomorrow and find the stamping so we can figure out if moving them further out woud cause rubbing on the outside of the tire while turning.

If you already have a 3inch suspension lift, you can't add any spacers to it it'll be really messed up
Only way to go higher is a body lift unless you buy spindles and go from there
