    Money is a little tight right now and I'm wondering are any of you guys running spidertrax 1.25s in the front only? I just bought a set of 285/75r16s to compliment my Toytec lift and would like to run the stock alloys. Any way would my truck look weird with only spacers in the front? If you have pictures that would be a great help.

    I only have spidertrax only on my front wheels. EXCEPT, im running 265/70/17 tires. this will give you and idea but yours should stick out a bit more, a little less than half an inch.

    IMO, if you run 285s and put the spacers only on the front, it'll look a little funny. I'm running 285s on stock rims. Here are the pics:

    Question. I am running 265/65R16's and have a bit of rubbing in the front at full lock. Will running the spacers up front resolve this or no? Also will an alignment be needed after putting the spacers on?

    Shouldn't need an alignment- but it's never a bad idea. And they may alleviate your rubbing issue.

    Let me ask this also, would I need to run a 1" spacer or a 1.5" spacer? Also what is the thickest spacer you can SAFELY run on our trucks?

    I have no idea...I don't know how to do the math to tell if one inch or one and a half inches will fix your rubbing.
    You won't find spacers much larger than like 2 inches max I think...You also need to consider your state laws- If you tires stick out past the fenders it's a ticket-able offense in some states....Just FYI.

    i used to have 1.25 spacers up front and none in the rear. i liked the way it drove. Wider track upfront is not a bad thing.
