    So I have a 6" lift on my truck with fuel krank wheels with an offset of +1 with flares but with 35x12.5x18 tires but I want the tire out more can I go as much as a 2" spacer or stay with maybe like a 1.5 ? I dont want to cut anything if possible Also have read if I pull with the truck its not the greatest idea to use wheel spacers ?

    The horror stories from wheel spacers are over exaggerated and/or from not installing properly. I’ve used eBay wheel spacers for years with ZERO issues. Why pay more for something that is used from the same material as a bigger name brand. It makes people feel all warm and fuzzy knowing they bought the “better” name. Lol, anyway rant over.

    1.5” is what you need homie. Hook it up.

    Ok I was out cutting the wheel and measuring and for sure I do think thats right I think a 2" would defiantly rub .But you do suggest hub centric right ?

    I think if you haul your family around that is an unnecessary risk! What if they do snap going down the freeway. All because it looks cooler? I can understand a small spacer on a stock wheel, but you are already running a pretty decent offset not too mention the stress your wheel bearing will see. But to each their own I guess

    Safety is always a concern and I’m well aware of the “risks”, but unlike most people I stay on top of maintenance. If I hear a noise, feel a wobble, or anything out of the ordinary I’m jumping on it. I take extra precautions when working on my truck, and as my truck sits now I would have no problem making a trip across country with my 7 month old daughter.

    Good most people aren’t as diligent. Enjoy

    I'll weigh in here. I have ran and lightly wheeled with spacers on and have not had issue. Those were Bora brand 2 inch. I have installed some Amazon and Ebay spacers and have had issues with buddies trucks (snapped studs) with just road driving. There is a difference in material quality. Be cautious of what you are buying. The idea of spacers imo if installed and of good quality you should have zero issue.

    $100 for spacers and lugs do not scream quality component to me.

    I might add real quick I don't dive my truck much. When I do it is pulling a camper . my truck is an 08 with only 82k miles but I may just wait and save and get some negative offset Wheels sometime
