    So I originally wanted to put 285/70r17 with a 3" lift but was told I needed wheel spacers. I don't want my tire sticking too far out. I was thinking on going down to 265/70/17 with a leveling kit but I really wanted the 33's.... Anybody have any trouble with their wheel spacers?

    I have Spider Trax spacers and they work great, no complaints. No rubbing issues with 285/75/16 and a 3" lift[​IMG]

    Awesome... Does it matter what wheel you get to determine if you need a wheel spacer?? I wanted to get the MT sidebiters 17x9 with the bf km2's

    It all has to do with backspacing and the offset. All I know is with stock wheels you need spacers to clear with 33's. I'd call whoever you are buying them from and they should be able to answer that for you. Let me know if how that setup works for you because thats the same wheel/tire set up I want to get

    I also have the spidertrax wheel spacers, didnt really have a reason for them but just to widen my track without going with aftermarket wheels....They gave me no trouble at all and I always check them when I do a tire rotation...hope your setup works for ya

    wat?
    if you get wheels around a 4.5" BS, then you wont need the spacers. spacers are needed for the stockers since they are a 5.5" BS.

    wat?
    if i HAD to run spacers, i'd go spidertrax. if you do get those new rims w/ the right BS, you wont need them. i'd go that route above spacers.
