Thanks BigHorn!

The best thing to do is go out and measure what the rake is on your truck right now. That way you have some numbers to do some math with and you can figure out how big of a spacer you need. All trucks come slightly different from the factory so it's hard to tell you exactly what you'll need to look level. I can tell you for sure you won't want 1.75".... You'll end up with a lot of rake still.
Once you measure your fender heights, find the difference front and back. Subtract 2.8" from that and find out how much rake you would have with no spacer. Too look level to the eyes and not nose high you'll want about 0.5" to 0.75" of rake. From there you'll be able to tell if you even need a rear spacer or not. Or what size you'll need.

Those are definitely nice looking tires! I thought about going with them but they had just come out when I ordered mine so there was no reviews or anything. Now there's a few guys throughout the forum that are running them and I haven't heard anything bad so far.
