    So the back spacing on my rims don't bump out the tires enough.
    Im thinking about getting some wheel adapters to bump them out.
    People say only in the front i think that looks wierd.

    then others say its kinda bad especially if im towing or off roading.
    What do you guys think?

    You will get a 50/50 mix of replies... Either bashing or defending them. Although the comments for the hubcentric will be a bit better.

    Yes, IMO just the front looks stupid.

    I have been using spidertrax spacers for 5000 miles with no problems yet, and I think they look great.

    Spidertrax? Hmm well i was talking to some other people from 4wheelparts and they said that 1.5 is too much. what do you recommend? Like 1.25 or what?
