    Anyone running this combination? Are the LR UCAs enough to negate the need for Spidertrax?

    They should give plenty of room for running without the spacers.

    Yap - you will need 1/4 spacers in front and even so they may still rub slightly at full lock in reverse. The stock wheels have 5.25 Back Spacing (BS) most manufacture (i.e. ICON) recommend max of 5.00 - while most aftermarket wheel land in the 4.5 BS range this often requires body mount mode. I have had 285 with stock wheels for 2 years its the best size to use without major mods - you will have to 4lb sledge the pinch welds in front.

    Thanks. I was thinking instead of dropping $200 on Spidertrax, put it toward the LR UCAs in the group buy and it would be better spent.
