wheel spacers....to buy or not?

i am looking at going to a 13.5" wide tire and am currently running a 12.5" with rubbing on my inner leaf. i have 4.5" backspacing on my kmc rims. i am looking at a wheel spacer but not really fully sold on the idea. my concern is when i am towing a heavy load. i know that this has been asked before several times, but i would like to hear from others that have used spacers while towing a heavy load or had a set for awhile.
thanks
clarence

use fred goeske at wheeladapter.com. Make shure they are hubcentric. I have his spacers for 70k miles with no issues. I haul 10-12k on a semi daily basis with my construction business.
