    After searching, I still havent found a definitive answer on whether or not the 1.25" Spidertrax wheel spacers would fit on my stock Tacoma?... I have no lift, and dont plan on getting one, but I do have aftermarket tires (Firestone Destinations 265 75/16).

    Some say if I put the wheel spacers, it would rub the fenders unless you get a lift... and others say it would work just fine :notsure:

    Input and pics from anybody running these spacers on their STOCK Tacoma (SR5 or TRD OR) with no lift, and aftermarket tires?

    I had spidertrax on stock steelies with 265/75/16 M/Ts and had very little rubbing. After removing the front flaps, the rubbing was gone.

    They look great though. I hate the 'tucked' look of oem wheel stance.

    They will rub. It happened to me. I was running the same tire size and move to a new wheel that didn't have the correct backspacing.it creates a larger arc out of the tire when it turns and brings it closer to your fender. And it rubs pretty bad. Had to get a 3" spacer lift up front for awhile and it only rubbed in reverse and turning afterwards without any cutting. Or hitting a Bump and turning. I went with fiberglass fenders eventually and now no rubbing at all

    What width were the wheels you were using?

    for a backspacing of 4.25" ( which would be the effective backspacing of stock rims with spidertrax) the wider the rim is the more likely the rubbing. Since the stock rims are only 7" wide, he'll likely have very minimal rubbing if any. That scenario would put the outer edge of the wheel 0.75 further into the wheel well than a 4.5" bs 8" wide rim.

    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    I ran Spidertrax with 265/70/17 Duratracs on Sport rims for a couple days before I put my lift on. They rubbed like a mofo.

    The sport rims are wider than the offroad rims so I would expect more rubbing with them.

    Yeah that sticks out 2.25" more than stock. The trd offroad rims with spidertrax would stick out 1.25" more than stock.

    ya i just wanted to know if this was those kind of mods that causes a chain reaction of other "required" mods.

    i've been thru 2 other rides in the past 3 years, the mod bug was killing me. i had a Yukon a year ago where i dropped it with a DJM kit, next thing you know i have to buy aftermarket shocks and a sway bar kit to get the ride back to stock... when i was told that the djm kit would keep the ride stock

    See if someone around you would let you try their spacers to see if there is rubbing.
