    I'm running stock rims/wheels on my 2010 Tacoma and in the process of a 3" lift and spacing out tires.

    If you were to add spacers, or if you were to do it over, would you use 1.25" or 1.5" wheel spacers?

    i would go with 1.25, it will put a little less stress on your truck. i think 1.25 would be good!

    Most people on here run Spidertrax spacers and they are 1.25"s.

    If you are going to stay stock I would go 1.5. That's just me.:D

    Edit: by the way I have 1.5 with my aftermarket wheels and love the stance.

    do you get a lot of debri spray on the sides of your truck(rocks, gravel, etc) since you have such a wide stance.

    I hear a lot of talk about SpiderTrax Spacers; what are your thoughts of the hub-centric AllPro spacers?

    I went with AllPro spacers. I didn't have a preference, but I wanted my new tires on ASAP so I drove myself to Hemet to get the spacers instead of ordering online and waiting for either company. I'm running 1.25" hub centric spacers and haven't had one problem. They look very similar to the spidertrax spacers and are made of the same metal. Go either way I say!

    Get Spidertrax as everyone is saying...I had some spacers (before wheels) that weren't hub centric and it was a PITA. If your getting 33's and you anticipate getting wheels don't even waste your money on 'em.

    If you don't need spacers, then don't put them on! Unnecessary stress on your vehicle!

    So are hub centric spacers harder on your vehicle than an 8" wide wheel that has 0 offset?
