2 inch spacers.. Are they safe?

Hey guys I have an 06 king ranch with a 2 inch leveling kit. I have 35 inch tires (toyo mt) that rub a little. I want to eliminate this with 2 inch spacers. Aside from rubbing I think it will look better with Front and rear kicked out 2 inches?? I was looking at these... eBay Motors: WHEELS SPACERS ADAPTERS 8 Lug Ford 2003-Newer F250-F350 (item 120213768359 end time Jan-28-08 17:06:42 PST)

You got me, I dont know but thought I'd respond. You could go with a bigger off set rim. Anyone else know?

They are safe to use but can stress your wheel bearings and seals and cause premature wear. I would try to keep em to 1" if you can.

Im assuming wheels with +2 inch offset would also stress wheel bearings? I do occasionally tow a 8k boat and trailer.
