    Sorry for not being specific. I just wanted the tires to come out wider. So maybe the wheel spacers would work? How do those work?

    i'm not sure if you'll be able to see anything from the side, as for ride quality, i'm prob not the most experienced in comparing, but i can't notice a single difference

    Thanks for the help man.
    Do you know of any problems that wheel spacers cause? I heard that they can prematurely ruin the truck? Is there a thread that goes over this?

    Thanks again, Your all over this topic,
    Do you think it makes a difference on the truck? Dare I say it, I'd like to do it to a 95 ram 1500 I have. Think that since its a half ton it will have problems?

    i personally don't have much experience regarding different size trucks like that, but I think it's the same idea, shouldn't make much difference, that's just a guess though.

    Do you think that if I ran spacers only for the life of the tires that I got on it now until I buy new ones it would hurt the truck?

    Alright. I wonder if the brand you mentioned makes them for dodge too. Curious. Why did you do the 1.25 inch vs wider?
