    Wanting to purchase some spidertrax wheel spacers. I currently have the stock 265/70/16's that I am planning on running til they wear out then moving to a 265/75/16. Will the spacer's work with both of these tire specs with no rubbing issues?

    I have spacers with my 285/75/16's and had no issues with my old 265's. You should be fine. I didnt rub until I upgraded tires.

    The only difference you will see between those two tires will be in height not width.

    Not sure what width. I guess maybe the 1.25". Just hope that gives me the stance I want. Not sure if I need to go with the 1.50"

    Well looks like I'll go with the 1.25", thats the only choice you get from toytec per the order screen.

    According to toytec's spidertraxx order screen, the 1.25" are for '01- current tacomas, and the 1.50" are for '95.5-'00 tacomas. Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm also just hoping the 1.25"s move my tires out enough to give the stance I want.

    Either spacer will cause 265/75-16 tires to rub the mudflaps near full lock.

    They gave me a wider more aggressive stance. you could go further out with other spacers but ST are well known and make a good product that wont shit on you.

    KenLyns is right, at full lock you might rub but I just took my mudflaps off and trimmed the entire inner wheel well.
