    I just recently put a 2.5" lift on my truck with Toyo A/T II's and am debating wheel spacers to keep me from rolling over when off road. I currently have TRD FJ's and they poke out just a bit.

    Are spacers more for looks or will it help out?

    i wouldnt run spacers just because they are not good for a vehicle and put a lot of stress on the axle housing and hubs

    265/75/16 as it was the majority for no rub and good off road performance.

    I figured this, I found Bora spacers at .750 but figure this would still stress components.

    Feels a bit top heavyish now is all and some of the trails I hit already gave me some pucker factor when stock.

    Oh, I didn't know that. Some folks mention it for 285's to relieve rubbing. Thanks!

    That is to keep the 285's from rubbing the UCA on the inside of the tire

    Adding spacers to your current wheel could produce a rub on the inner / outer fender

    I had to laugh and now my co workers are looking at me crazy. But that does make me feel a whole lot better. Now I can save $ for other mods!
