I am considering installing my Toyo 35x12.50 all terrains without the spacers and seeing a while...then adding them if it's an issue as these are 3/8" and to me that seems like a LOT of thread to take away from the lug nuts...some concern pushing the wheel that far out...


EDIT: Looking at actual tire specs yours are 13" wide and mine are 12.5" maybe I can run without it...I have an extra 1/4" of space over what you show stock due to tire not as wide...
I really enjoy doing the how to videos -- I like being able to do stuff myself . and hope the video helps other guys out.

the big mud nobbies on the side wall is the only thing that touched . if they weren't there I think I would have not needed spacers .

I ran the 33x12.5 without spacers for almost 500 miles -- and I could not full turn because they would hit the sway bar and upper control arm, but Ive had lifted truck before and as soon as I thought I was close to hitting or just touched , I would stop right away . I don't really have any places that requires me to fully turn hard anyways. but now that the spacers are on I can fully lock the wheel both ways and no rubbing .

Junior at motosport tech said that you need a minimum of 5 full turns on the lug nut for it to work -- and with the spacers on I got more than that -- I am not going to sweat it at all -- just check them every so often .

and with only 3/8 spacer you really cant tell from front to back -- so I might not even order spacers for the rear .
