Spidertrax wheel spacers

I've decided to run my stock wheels for a while until I find a 16" wheel I like and doesn't cost 800 bucks for 4. I've ordered the Spidertrax wheel spacers and man do they look big. I only want my wheels and tires to stick out about an inch or so. Does anybody that has them on their trucks have pictures or just let me know so I can check out your gallery.

Thanks guys

Gary

That's what I was looking for! Thanks. Are you running the spacers on all 4 wheels? Also are those 285/75/16's?

I'm running the Spidertrax 1.25" spacers on stock rims and wheels on my 08 TRD off road. they will bring the tire out close to the edge of the fender flare. You'll like the result. Not too radical but nicer than stock.

I havent heard any rubbing issues with the spacers. I think if all it will void it a little bit because your bringing the tires out away from the fender

For the guys running them, any change of driving characteristics or does it still feel stock?? Would this help run larger tires(285s) on the stock rim and clear the UCA? I notice if i upgraded to a larger tire, it would rub on my UCA...

wider stance is better from what I have heard but i could not tell a definitive difference by only putting on the spacers. It will let you clear the ucs'a with the 285's but i do sometimes rub my bodymounts (not for long, getting them chopped soon!)

Edit: 285's will not work on stock height with spacers, you need the lift too.

you do have to trim a little on the fender flare after removing the mud flaps. that is also why you may get some body mount rub while the suspension is flexed
