If you do spacers I would definitely do them front and back. The front already sticks out about 0/5" further than the back from the factory so it would look funny to have them out even further without doing the back.

Not wanting to hijack the thread but will a 20"x9" wheel with -12mm offset with stock 275/60/20 tires stick out past the fender with the Outdoorsman flares?
