    Hey i posted a post a few days ago and got help to get a 1.5 inch wheel spacer and found one for $69 bucks from rough country 6/5.5 and i have rubbing issues in the front ONLY when i backup in reverse.I have 33 13.50's right now and i'm putting 35 12.50 nitto trail grapplers on soon. I believe that with the tire being so wide is causing it to rub but would need someone to help me out. I was wondering will the 1.5 inch wheel spacer help me not rub at all and if it does how does it do so??? Thanks will be looking forward for some good feedback.

    I would think that with the reduction in tire width on the 35's and more wheel spacing your rubbing issue should be fixed, but I'm just going by my gut instinct, see what others have to say.

    Spacers confuse the hell out of me. I had a bit of rubbing on my sway bar so I got a set of 12mm spacers and put them on. Yes, it cleared the sway bar but on the test drive I rubbed in all new places. I just don't get it. I hope you get dome good answers on this. I would love to run some 1.5" spacers with my stockies and 295's but like you said well it make it worse or clear everything?

    yeah man thanx for the advice.. i have read online that they are for to clear a larger tire and wouldn't run with anything over a 1.5 inch wheel spacer because it would be too much.. with the 13.50's the tire sticks out a good bit up front i would say between 2 or 3 inches and think that they might just be too wide to run regardless of tire height.In a few months i'm gonna buy some new nitto's 35 12.50 and see how they do hopefully will solve the problem but if not then i will turn back to the wheel spacer and give it a try ha no need to get ahead of myself.
