    Ok so I'm running 265/75/16r Nitto Terra Grapplers on stock rims and have noticed the tires sit right at 1 inch from the UCAs. I am looking at ordering a set of Spydertrax wheel spacers. Not sure if I should pull the trigger or not though.

    I just purchased a set of .75" Bora spacers to increase my UCA space to what you now have....

    When I put my LT265/75's on that space shrank to less than a 1/2" and the .75's give me just enough for everyday use & wheeling "air downs"....plus keep them comfortably within the wheel wells....

    Your truck looks good as is but that is just my 2 cents...;)

    Mine sit a lot closer than 1" from the uca.

    Get the spacers if you want a wider look, but you don't need them.
