    I saw the thread in the second gen section on lifts but it said if you want to use your stock rims then he recommended the spacers in the thread.My question is are those good for after market also and running the risk of sounding dumb do you put them on the back to I want to say yes but better safe than sorry. Thanks.

    what?

    wheel spacers can go on 1 wheel if your heart desires. you only need them if the lift your looking at doesnt fit the criteria for what wheels/tires you have. not all lifts require proper wheel spacing.

    wat?
    what lift and tires are you looking at running w/ stock wheels? also, the wheel spacers are more used for stock wheels w/ 285s or wider tires so they dont run the UCAs.

    I was planning on getting the toytec ultimate lift and running some 285's on aftermarket 16 wheels

    so if your getting those with 16's if the tire width is 8" get 4.5" bs and if the wheel width is 9" get 4.5 bs with -12mm offset :)

    OP: No offense but most of the questions you ask can be answered with a simple search. This is the 23rd thread you have created this month! At least you stopped posting in all CAPS though....

    the guy below has it...if you get an aftermarket wheel w/ a 4.5" BS, then there is no need for wheel spacers
