Wheel Spacers ?

Just wondering what u guys think of wheel spacers. I have an '05 F-350 and am looking to get new rims but cash is a little tight right now. Thinking of maybe getting 2" bolt on wheel spacers to widen out the stance, but have heard it's not a great idea. Any thoughts?

2" spacers are going to put a lot of strain on joints, bearings etc. I would personally never run a spacer over a half an inch thick.

I have asked this question.. It will wear everything prematurely.. If you want a wider stance get wheels with a larger offset.

I wouldn't go with the spacers either very hard on the bearings and ball joints I'd save for some aftermarket wheels with an offset
