Spacers won't cure this problem. The flares are overpowering the tires. Especially on the rear. I think you should take them off until you get bigger tires. I also think your wheel offset isn't low enough for those flares. What is the offset? I think you need -12 or so for those flares.

LowUFO...i was referring to my problem to use spacers on my rear wheels to bring em out an inch so they match my front. is it worth it to use the spacers for a cosmetic reason. I already have them and hubcentric rings for em so paying for em isnt an issue. my wheels are +18 and my front stick out a little more than an inch but my rears are perfectly even with the fender. i wanna run flares but only if the rear come out to where the fronts are at. are spacers really that bad if they are only an inch and installed and maintained properly?

I've done it a bunch of times over the years. Never had a problem. Especially on the rear. On a performance car, it can promote understeer. But on the truck, you won't even notice the difference when driving. Do it.

Here is one of my old cars with spacers front and rear to give it the right stance.
