    Just went to Discount Tires today for a balance and rotate and they told me they can't do it because i put Spidertrax spacers on the truck. They said its an insurance liability (wheel could come off). Which I can understand, but still WTF. So now I have to take the wheels off at home and use my roomates suburban to bring the tires to them to be balanced Then go home and put'em back on
