Wheel spacers?

So I'm thinking to get some wheel spacers for my 04 f250 to have the truck have a better stance with the rims and tires I'm putting on it. I like the look of the tires sticking out from under the wheel wells. But I've heard that these are a bad idea, so I'm liking for some feed back abd also if you have pics of your truck with them on id like to see em. Thanks.

Everyone around here runs 'em. Never actually seen anything bad happen, I've only heard of some guys friend of a friend having trouble. I was actually going to put mine on when I totaled my truck or else I'd be glad to tell you how they are.

I'll be putting them on my new truck this week. I have 2"

This truck has 2" spacers on it and he's never had a problem...

Also I'm not running a lift; wanting to drop the rear to get a better wide/low stance.

Edit: auto guide will only let me post tiny pics, I'll see what I can do to post better pics with photobucket.

Stock ride height. I'm rubbing the fender well some but I'm planning to cut it out this weekend. Only drove my truck about 20 miles before I had to leave for work.
