That could very well be. I wasn't 100% sure if the 20's were 19 or 25. But ya if they are 19 then Les Schwab really has no idea what they're talking about.... what they are suggesting will give you more rubbing not less. I'm thinking they aren't the guys to be listening to on this matter.

Are you rubbin on the inner fender liner at full left lock?

If you are and you get more negative offset with spacers or wheels your just gonna create more rubbing.

You need more lift or start cutting!

Those are one of the strongest spacers available, and they are hub centric which is a big plus!, additionally we ran them on our company truck for about 4000 miles while deciding what rims to go with and had no issues at all, we ran the 1.5".

In order to run 20x9's without rub you are going to want to look into a +0 or a +12mm rim.

Thanks for the replys. I'm going to try to answer everyone in one post.

Weight - yes they are heavier than stock, but I would expect that in a 10ply tire. The truck feels MUCH more sure-footed. A little difference in initial take off but not enough to keep me from buying them again. (I have the 3.92s) So far I've noticed a 1 mpg difference.

I also did magnaflow later that day, and it was actually a noticeable difference. Take off was much more responsive. (Cold Air Intake Next - maybe that will offset the noticeable difference that is left.)

I'll see if I can get some pictures of the wheel turned out. It's raining in seattle right now. Figures right?

In talking to other tire shops there are conflicting reports of wear. Is this just because of the quality difference in the different lines of spacers? And (sorry for the noob question) would I get 4 to even out the front and rear or would I just get 2 for the front axel?

Thanks for all the responses!

Different people have different opinions of spacers, if they are hub centric and a good quality you should be ok, I would not go off road with them though.

Additionally when I was running them I did not have any funny tire wear.

I have never seen anyone just buy 2 technically that is all you would need, however the truck would look very funny without doing the rears as well.

Thanks
