wheel spacers?????

so guys.. i got my hands on some 2" full billet wheel spacers... i know people run these on their duallys to run larger tires in the rear with no problems...

my question is do we like these for all around use? i want wider tires/wheels but right now my money is going to more important things.... so what do you guys think of me putting them on my rig.. will they hold up? i have never been a fan of putting spacers but i have done them to smaller rigs like jeeps or cars...

let me know what you think

-Raul

I have the same tires and rims as you and I put 2" spacers on. I have checked them every couple thousand miles and have no problems. I think your truck would look sic with a little wider stance.

I ran 1.5" hubcentric spacers for about a year to make 06 KR wheels fit on my 04...I haul regularly and I never had a problem. I'd check them once a month or so to make sure they weren't loose. They were never loose. Go for it.
