    About to put on 285/75/16 Mud Terrains on my stock 16 inch alloy wheels. Everyone says that I will need wheel spacers, so I did some research and found 2 brands that I think look the most reliable. Spidertrax and Wab Fab.

    Here are the links:

    The question is: What size wheel spacers do I need? And do I have Hub Centric Wheels? I have a 2001 double cab. Thanks Guys!

    i just got the 1.25 spacers for my 285-70-17 on my 2008. very very easy install. And makes the stance look better.

    O ya i got spidertrax, i heard they were the best, ( u dont want to go cheap when it involves spacers)

    Thanks for the quick feedback. So 1.25" is all I need? Im afraid that 3" will stick out a lot. I dont think an 01 and an 08 will differ a lot.

    ya 3 inch is probably a way too big spacer. The 1.25 gives it enough room to stick out so it doesnt rub on the uca anymore. Plus you can always get wider tires, with a lesser backspacing later. The 1.25 are just fine
