wheel spacer pics please 1.5 or 1.25

going to purchase a set of spidertrax wheel spacers with265/75/16 tires. Was wondering what 1.5 would look like vs the 1.25. I just dont want to regret not getting 1.5. I know its only a quarter of an inch but does anyone have pics or suggestions

Thanks for the pics, I have some 1.25 spidertrax spacers on the way our of necessity, but I am also looking forward to the more aggressive stage they will give me.

i can't imagine you would have a problem with that setup. you know, i ran without wheel spacers for about a month when i bought my truck, and i live where the roads have a lot of turns in them. i noticed a real difference in the turn-taking after putting on the spacers. no regrets at all. suggestion though is check the spacers after about 500 miles, and then again at 1000 miles and make sure they are on securely. i never had an issue, but i have heard some people find they are not snug and need a tightening at first.

Will do, I drive 100 miles a day on the highway, really wouldn't want to run into any issues.

I'm selling my all pro 1.5 spacers at the moment. And I have extra extended length lugnuts to go with them.

If you want pics, send me your email and I'll send you the pics. I can't post on here cause I'm on my phone

You really only need 1/4 spacer to clear the arms. But I don't recommend using ones that small since they don't have lug studs on them they just slide over your existing studs. Check out allprooffroad.com or spidertrax for the best ones to use. In actuality you should just get new wheels with the proper backspacing, but if you are like me and can't afford to do wheels, the spacers are ok.

Just a question. why do you want wheel spacers??

Edit: question directed at op. Those tires fit without wheel spacers.. If you want a more aggressive stance why not save up and get wheels with less backspacing??

To fit larger/wider tires. With my 2.5 inch lift 285's will rub the upper control arm without moving the rim and tire farther out. So you either get new wheels with the proper backspacing. Or you get wheel spacers.

I was actually directing that question at op.. my bad.

But I understand why you have them..
I saw your post earlier so I know you get what it means to have wheels spacers.

I personally wouldn't buy tires that large till I could afford the right size wheels though. Just one more extra aftermarket piece with the potential to fail.
