    I'm looking to add some wheel spacers. Pros and cons? I do haul and load heavy things regularly.

    I ran Spidertrax for a while. Either those or Bora. Almost everyone here will say the same I believe.

    As far as I know, Spidertrax only makes 1.25". Bora makes different thicknesses. Both are hubcentric which is important. When dealing with something as critical as keeping the wheels on the truck, it's a good idea to go with top quality parts.
    1.25" with OEM +60 offset wheels nets roughly a +28 offset which is in the sweet spot for our trucks.

    Also, Do I need an alignment after spacers are installed?

    Spacers have nothing to do with your alignment, just make sure they're hub-centric and work them into your maint schedule, like an oil change, check them out make sure everything still tight and so on, ran them for of 2 yrs on my tundra, no issues

    Bro.......do a lot of research on this before you buy. This forum is filled with a ton of info on wheel spacers. A good Installation is critical. I would stick with the recommend brand.

    Be warned that a spacer will make the "arm" of a turning tire bigger. It may cause rubbing in different spots.

    G2's are another to consider. I ran G2 spacers on several jeeps without any problems, they are also hub centric. As others said make sure you check them as part of your maintenance routine
