Don't see why a 1/4" or 1/2" spacer wouldn't do the trick unless you are running 15" wheels?

We need more details, like the wheel design and backspacing...the Crager Rockcrawler style wheels on my '11 access cab 4x4 needed some very light grinding on the inside where the holes were stamped in the wheels. Took only a few minutes with an angle head.

Wait, what's the back spacing? But yeah, hopefully some spacers will take care of it.
