    Welcome!! There are a ton of guys running the 1.25s with little issues... Just make sure they are wheel and hub centric.

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner. I run a 1.25" wheel spacer. The reason for the extra .25" is to ensure its wider than the length of the lugs.
    Make sure you get a reputable brand (no eBay) and that it is 1" or wider with the separate set of lugs. Do not use the simple spacers that feed through the lugs that are really just glorified washers. These reduce the amount of effective thread on the lug nuts and could cause the wheel to fall off.

    To answer your question, anything that brings the tire outside of stock configuration could cause premature wear. This not only applies to wheel spacers but also aftermarket wheels that have more negative offset.

    What brand are your spacers and where did you get them if I may politely ask.

    Havent purchased any yet. But now thinking of getting rims instead. I need a 4" back space though in a 16" diameter to keep my very expensive tires which are brand new. Who ever did the lift before me kept stock 06 DC tundra rims and upped the tires to 285/70/16 so i get a lil rub on control arms and frame on sharp turns. Any advice in where to find a 16" rim w/ 4" BS woud be greatly appreciated.

    Wheel spacers are spidertrax. They are fabricated in Colorado. Purchased through Toytec.
