    I was wondering if using Spidertrax wheel spacers, if you get lots of stone scratches and paint chips from the tires throwing up road debris? I just have stock tires right now, but wanted to get the look of the spacers... but not if its going to eat away my paint... or are there some after market mud flaps that go out the extra inch and 1/4 ? Thanks for your help

    I doubt you'll find mud flaps that look good hanging out to cover the extra tire...and I haven't had any issues with rocks.

    You might consider a set of sliders to help protect the rocker panels...

    Welcome to the TW btw!!
