I was talking to a guy a while back who was saying that he ran a set of 1.5" spacers for a day but they made the wheels rub really bad. He was saying the trimming would be substantial, so he just took them off. The Spidertrax are 1 1/4", probably still going to need some trimming but not as bad.

I thought that spacers were designed to stop rubbing?

Yes They stop the rubbing on the UCA's but essentially give the wheel less back spacing also, it pushes the wheel toward the outside of the wheel well potentially creating a new rub point on the cab mount, mud flaps and front inner wheel well. The new rub points all depend on the thickness of the spacers. From all the info i have read it seems that a 1" to 1 1/4"spacer would work the best.

True but he also has no mudflaps, I like that, and an aftermarket front bumper, which is also bad ass.
