Spidertrax Question?

I have a 07' DC TRD and thinking about going to an 18x9 wheel. I do not have a lift but I do plan on getting the front and rear billies and leveling out the front. I'm not necessarily wanting to tallest tire but I would like some width. If I went with the 265/65/18 setup like KPT has,would it be feasible to go with a set of spidertrax just to give me a little more width and would this be my best option for what I'm trying to accomplish? Thanks in advance!

If you're getting new wheels, why not just get the backspacing you want rather than using spacers?

Yes,that does seem to make more sense huh? Do you know what the most BS I'd be able to go with and not rub?

Replied to your PM. I wouldn't go any less than 4.5", especially with a 9" wide wheel.

That setup will stick out 3" more than stock already. If you go any further you'll definitely have some rubbing. In fact TW member babytruck had 17x9's, 4.5" BS, with 265/70/17's, and rubbed at stock height, because the edge of the wheel is out so far.

I definitely don't want to get into cutting and chopping everything. Thanks a lot for all your help.
