If you have small rubbing issues you can correct it with a 1/4" spacer. Most guys on here would not do a spacer but it will work. I would recommend going the proper route and get yourself some aftermarket rims. The rims should have a negative offset. This acts like a spacer and it brings the tires out away from the truck. Having some aftermarket rims with negative offset really changes the whole look of the truck.
When you have a negative offset it makes the truck look so much more aggressive since your tires stick out past the wheel wells. Also with rims you really make the truck look custom and like your own. Once I put rims on my truck it changed the whole look of the truck.
Stick with a negative offset between -10 and -20mm. I have a -18mm offset on my rims and it makes the tires stick out 2.5" away from the body. I had to get some fender flares put on my truck since the tires would cover the truck in dirt/mud/water w.e was on the road haha.
If you already have rims then go with a small spacer.
