    well, considering a good backspace is 4 inches, and the OP put on 2" wheel spacers already, he will need a wheel with 6 inches of backspace which don't exist...

    ditch the wheel spacers and buy a wheel with 4" of backspace

    I am currently running a 265 75 16. I was thinking of maybe putting a set of 17 but I don't know how it or if it would effect my motor or tranny. It's a 2.7 automatic and I just don't wanna mess it up

    you may not find too many folks who are running the Pro Comp coil spacers as there are cheaper costing spacers out there..

    as for AAL, so long as you went with a long AAL, you should be ok..

    for the tires, stick to the size you are currently running... any bigger and you will run into some MPG and power issues....

    I really apprecate all the help mikesdoublecab I just wonder if unmade the right or wrong decision by doin the lift and wheel spacer but I need to hurry up and get some wheels cause the way ppl r talking the wheel spacers will affect the wheel bearing and I don't wanna have to start replacing them

    wheel spacers can stress the bearings, but but that tends to happen when you are also running really big tires too...

    i know several people who have been running wheel spacers for years and jump their trucks regularly with no issues...

    but if you can find a wheel that you like and it comes in 4.25" or 4" backspace, then go for it and ditch the wheel spacers for peace of mind...

    as for the spacer lift you have, nothing wrong with it other than the price, but the ride will eventually get stiffer...

    if you have the resources and money to upgrade later, look into some coilovers...

    when ready to take that plunge, feel free to hit me up for some pointers...

    :thumbsup:
