    Right now my tires are flush with my wheel housing, but I like the look of them sticking out about 2" or so. My buddy told me to get 2" wheel spacers, but my other friend who know tons about off roading and trucks said that wheel spacers suck and are too much wear and tear, is there any better solutions or is he wrong about them? .... btw I have 2WD so not much off roading for me.

    I'd go with wheel spacers. You could get rims that are wider and have less backspacing but that's just extra expense and harder to reverse if you realize that too much shit gets thrown on your paint

    If you get hub-centric spidertrax spacers and torque them correctly, you shouldn't have any issues.

    i too was thinking about wheel spacers for my stock rims, i'm leaning towards getting them. agressive look, less cost than buying new wheels :)
