Wheel spacers??? Such a thing?

Okay check it out, for now i've got factory rims 16x8 on 35" tires, looks okay but i can't afford bigger rims for that big tire look, you know bigger than 12.5" width. is there some sort of like a spacer or something that could go between the rotor and wheel maybe to give it a wider stance for now?

Let me know please.... Thanks in advance guys

you can do them but don do over like a 1 inch. makes the front end really weak past that.

so if you did some 1/2" spacers on the front, it would be ok? I only want the ones that slip over the studs and not the bolt on type. would it be better for that kind or should I get the bolt on type? thinkin of doing this and adding the 550 factory fender flares.

contact Fed Goeske (818) 992-5700. He made my front spacers 2" wide they are hubcentric and have factory studs. If you go larger make sure they are hubcentric. I tried the cheap ebay ones and had 7 studs snap while driving to SSS08. The ones Fred made me are top shelf.

Mike, how much were those? I'm looking into getting some, but seems a lot harder to find Hubcentric ones for our trucks. (+$$$)
