What size of spacers?
 
I'm in need of some new tires on my 07 1500 4x4 and I'm pretty sure I want to go with Falken Wildpeak AT's either 275/65/20's or 35x12.50 20's and a 2" level. From what I understand I will need 1/4" spacers with the 35's but has anyone ran 1 1/2" spacers? I think the stance would look a little nicer. Does anyone have any opinions on this? Or better yet pictures of this type of set up?

Thanks,
Maas

yeah you will need spacers.

The opinions on spacers on this forum vary..some stay away from them, others run them.

Just don't buy cheap ones. I would just get the 1/4" personally. I would be skeptical to run large spacers, but it's up to you.

Save up and get some offset rims, that'll give you the stance you want without having to use spacers

1) You want to make sure its a 'wheel adapter' and not a spacer at that size
2) Make sure its hub centric and made specifically for your hub
3) With the 1.5" wheel adapter, you will probably rub due to only have 2" of level and although the stance would look killer (yes, it would), it will rub when turning.

You will want either more height either via body lift or suspension lift on top of the Bilsteins or a go with that 1/4" spacer and a 9" wide rim with 0 offset
