    I am looking for opinions on wheel spacers. Would you use them. Have you used them. Good experience? Bad experience? Would you say Spidertrax is the preferred spacer if used. I have heard both positive and negative feedback on spacers. So just looking for hands on help to actually see if they are worth it in the long run. My issue is I am running Trd Carve wheels. 20x8.5 +60 off set. So in other words tucked in. I like the look of my wheels and Ko2's so it's spacers or start all over and that =$$$ Look forward to some feedback. Thanks

    Over 2 years with Spidertrax 1.25" wheel spacers. No issues at all.

    Glad to hear . With my +60 offset what would get me to just at the fender maybe a little past? Also in your experience with them any issues with tire wear. I am wondering if 295/60/20 tires would fit my 20 x 8.5 wheels and work well with the spacers. Thanks again for your opinions :thumbsup:

    I too had used Spidertrax 1.25" spacers before I bought my current set of wheels and tires without issue. Just be sure to use a torque wrench and a small amount of thread lock (Spidertrax supplies the thread lock) upon initial use and recheck the torque after the first 100 miles. Make sure to retorque the lugs each time you remove a wheel.

    Here were my OEM wheels with the spacers and 275/65 tires ...



    I would think with 295/60 with 1.25" spacers you might rub on the flaps but miss the cab mount.

    The 1.25" changes the stock offset from +60 to I think +28. I'm not good with the 20" wheels/tires but I'm running 1.25" with stock +60 wheels and 295/65/18. This is a before and after to give you an idea for fenders

    Very Nice. I would imagine I would be about even if I stayed at my current tire size. Notice any thing different when driving as opposed to stock? Looks great by the way :thumbsup:

    Only change is how it looks. I hate the tucked look.
