    I imagine that would sepend on the lift. There is room for 285's. May need to adjust Castor up to 3.5 or so, and/or do a cab mount chop/hammer the press weld seam down.

    Damn, I've heard about that.... do you think even with only 1" spacer it would rub? I'd rather know before I buy them

    When I had my stock wheels with 265/75/16 I ran spacers no issues. I got some aftermarket wheels (16s) and used the same spacers and they rubbed the cab mounts. Took off the spacers and they didn’t rub.

    That’s also with a 2” lift at the time.

    I ran them on my 80 series for years without issues. Plan on running them on my taco in the future.

    '05 TRD OR AC~ Ran a 1" lug-centric set from eb@y and they were junk, steering wheel shook.... ended up getting a set of FJ steelies and the wheels stuck out as far as the oem TRD OR alloy w/ the spacers and rode smooth like mayonnaise....

    '15 TRD Sport DCLB ~ Ran Spidertrax 1.25" hub-centrics with oem wheels and they were smooth..... IMO you can't just impact them on, have to gradually tighten by hand....but in the end I ended up getting ar172 alum rims.....

    6 inch lift. 35's.
    have not read the previous 4 pages. there is nothing wrong with running quality wheel spacers that are installed properly. nothing at all wrong with it.

    I have 1.25 hub centric spacers. I have had them 2 years now. I have not had any problems with them. I run 10ply 285/75r16s I check them every rotation and have not found any loose. I go off roading and have towed across country.
    The times that I have seen people that have problems are the ones that do not do maintenance on the vehicles.

    2.25 in level
    Hello all,
    Just tried to squeeze 285/75/16 tires on OEM rims with no more than a procomp 2.25 inch level (mistake). Ive heard wheel spacers are the way to fix that problem but ive also heard they are sketchy; any suggestions?

    Spidertrax and Bora hubcentric are suppose to be the best..I think they are both legit.

    The key is hubcentric, they have a lip on the inside of the spacer where your wheel will center (like the Oem hub). I’d also stick to 1.25” spacers, no bigger.
    Both of the above mentioned brands have these features

    Hubcentric yes and when installing wheel spacers use the correct lug nuts...see photos for clarity.
