    I have a 3 inch lift with 265/70/17 bfg a/t tires with trd sport wheels, and I want the tires to stick out of the fenders more for a more aggressive look. They look too sucked in. Is this possible? What would i need?

    a set of spidertrax spacers should do the trick.....or get another set of wheels with less backspacing.

    That's a personal thing, what you can afford, and longevity. I was originally going to do the Spidertrax because I had only heard great things about them, but decided on going a more permanent route with replacing the rims. Good luck to you!

    You can occasionally find them on the forums used, but your best bet is http://www.spidertrax.com. A set of four will run you $200 plus shipping, which is what they normally run on eBay and other offroad sites.

    i'd save for wheels, simply because I like the look of a wheel with less backspacing. Flush stockies look ugly imo and pushing them out with spacers would look even worse.

    I looked through this thread but please help me out here, im not really the guy that knows a bunch about tires. but what does offset and backspacing mean? noob question i know, but id rather know about it now than screwing up.

    i agree with all of the above. either spidertrax spacers or new wheels with a smaller backspacing will give you the more aggressive look

    good looking truck by the way!!
