Input from spacer (wheel) guys?

I have some 1.25" spacers to put on but not sure if I want to or not. Read that you shouldn't use impact guns when rotating them and I doubt guys at a tire shop would care if I said not to so been a little iffy on putting mine on. I know plenty of people on here run them but just wondering what y'all do when it comes to rotating and balancing the tires. That's why I don't want to but I have the stock O/R rims with 285's with about .5" of clearance between the tire and UCA and that's why I want to. Thanks for the help!

The only company i'd be safe using when it comes to wheel spacers is Spider Trax.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

1/2" is plenty of room.

Why add another failure point to the truck and increase the chances of wearing out parts when it is not needed?

Also if your worried about some shop screwing up your truck the easy fix is to rotate your tires yourself. A little manual labor never hurt anyone (if your physically capable).

Good

If you're worried about idiots in a shop screwing up the wheels on your truck, just do it yourself.

Rotating I have no problem with but I don't have a way to balance them myself. Just figured 1/2" of clearance would be too close to comfort when offroading. Nothing hard though, just trails and dirt/rocky roads to campsites, things like that.

Another reason I ask is because I'm unsure about what rims to get as far as backspacing goes. I've read the sticky but it's almost as if it's a foreign language to me plus I like my stock rims now that they're black.
