Would spacers be a bad idea?

    My Taco aint lifted but I want a wider stance on it. Would it be safe for me to use spacers? Would I create rubbing of any kind if I did that? I am running stock wheels atm.

    I was thinking about 1/50 spacer. Is that way too much?

    Thanks for all input!



    I know so little about this... :anonymous:

    Only down sides to wheel spacers are the leverage they put on your wheel bearings and wheel studs, otherwise you're fine to run them. Every once in a while check the wheel bearings for play.

    TYVM for both your replies.

    One question though, will the added pressure that the spacers inflict cause me a lot of problems and possibly cause something to break?

    Those dont seem to be hub centric. Will probably give problems.
