    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.

    I went with the Bora 1" and 275/70 - 18 BFG K02's on stock wheels. Perfect fit & couldn't be happier with results. BTW if you go the .75 route - you'll have to cut stock wheel studs down to fit.

    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

    Ive had spidertrax with my Pro wheels installrd since August and have done quite a few long trips. Still early but so far so good. I got Spidertrax for peace of mind and also considered bora as recommended by fellow Tundra owners. Was about to purchase boras but then someone locally listed the 4x spidertrax for $120 and the rest was history.

    I have a 2016 1794 CM and had 1.25" spacers with 295/70 R18 OR wheels and had some rubbing issues - nothing major to fix, but they did rub. I bought some less expensive (but good enough I think) spacers off Amazon shown below. I didn't want to add fender flares but also didn't like all the crap thrown on the side of my truck, so went to 1" BORA spacers - no more dirty truck and the outside of the tire is almost even with the body side panel now. Also, I still have plenty of UCA clearance. I can't speak about 2" spacers, but seems the rubbing could be bad.
