For those of you with 255/75/17

Are you running wheel spacers? I have read about the tires rubbing with a 2-inch lift, but is that with AND without spacers? I am trying to get away without running the sweel spacers. I don't mind a bit of rub

When I first lifted mine, I was holding off on spacers until I got the tires mounted, to see exactly how badly I needed them. Short of the story? You need them.

Do you need them becuase they rub on the ball joint bolt or because they rub on the inner fender well?

If it's just the bolt i can do a little redneck engineering on it (cut the bottom off).

well with the 255/75/17 th ball joint is a hair from the tiren you can i guess cut the bolt like he is saying but there is not alot to be cuting on the bolt and they will RUB and RUB bad.lol i put mine on without my space jsust to see what it looked like and let me tell you they rubbed. the spacer sets if off a little and gives alot more room. also the stands is alot nicer with the whel spacers.

Scion4x4 Has Some Good Before And After Shots Of His Wheel Spacers.

i used some 1.5" wheel spacers on mine. i had less rubbing on the fender well after i did that. and it looks much better sticking out a bit.

That's before spacer. It's blurry, but my camera was having a hard time focusing. Forgot all about the fact that it had a macro setting that would've made things nicer, but... oh well, you get the point.

Also, from the outside...

Before:



After:



(front/back comparison, but still, you get the point).

Ok, if i get spacers should i get 1.5 or 2 inch? I know a lot of people like the spidertrax ones, but what about these:

they are a bit cheaper for only $85.50 shipped

Those are not hub-centric, they do not have the lip to align and keep them from moving around. I would stay away from any that do not have the lip.
