    Hey guys, being 2.5 inches wider do you notice any difference in performance, in theory the car should be a little more stable around turns but probably not enough to notice.

    I do know that they add a lot of needed room for control arms. I'm thinking about getting some when i get my larger tires ( i'm thinking nitro grapplers ) and i want bilstein 5160's or fox racing and TRD beadlock rims

    Spidertrax are only 1.25 I believe, which means wider stance and better handling.

    Yes, SpiderTrax.

    I noticed the handling changed for the better once I installed SpiderTrax spacers on my truck last week. It just felt more planted, if that makes sense. It not like it's on rails or anything, but it didn't feel floaty and top heavy as much as it did before. Overall, a positive impact on the driving experience for me personally.

    1.25 on each sides = 2.5 total added width between the wheels.
