Wheel Spacers

Does anyone know of a good wheel spacer that wont compromise load capacity? I have 35's on a 4in. lift and I rub when i turn to sharp. If i put spacers i need to put them on the front and back so that the truck doesnt look weird. Any suggestions of ideas????

i put napa 1/4" spacers in the front and rear of mine and it took almost all the rub out with the 37s and made my old 35s clear jus fine. also depends on your wheels

Have you pulled any heavy loads with them? If yes, how have they held up?
