    Hey guys I am wondering If I was to get some spacers with my stock rims how wide of tires could I go with and what size of spacer would I need. If anyone is currently using spacers and stock rims please let me know what sizes the spacers and tires are, thanks!

    Tires 265 maybe 275 is the biggest you could put without doing a lift. Spacers i believe people are getting 1.5.

    thanks did you have to do any cutting to make your tires fit with the billies, I have them on order right now and am wondering if I should go with 1.75 with 275's or 2.5 inchs with 285's

    I am running 1.5" spacers with 285/75R16 BFG All-Terrains with a 3" lift. I had to trim quite a bit from the front and rear of the wheel well liner, etc.

    I knew what you were talking about, and there are lift spacers. They bolt on above the strut i believe. You went the right way with the 5100's.
