Default Rear Spacers

I just installed Fuel Wheels (20x9/+1 Offset) and 35 Toya tires. The front tires sticks out about 1.5" +/- from the front fender and the rear about a 1" +/- ... What size rear spacers is everyone using to align the rear with the front. .5" seems too much, .25"? Also, what brand/type is recommended?

I plan to post pics in another thread... as soon as I take some.

Thanks

Bloody hell. Really?

I'm waiting for my FIVE bolt wheels to arrive shortly so I can finally mount and install my 37's and didn't realize I had this to look forward to. I also ordered Fuel in a 20x9 +1 offset. Hmmm

You're killin me here - you gotta post a pick along the side of the truck from one end to the other so we can see the difference.

Is it that noticeable?

I have 1.5" spacers on my 5" lifted land cruiser but I hadn't heard of guys running spacers 'only' on one axle or another to create the 'illusion' of balanced tire width.

Almost all 4x4 vehicles have that problem. The front track is always wider than the rear. ... Most people just leave it because it really isn't a big deal and isn't that noticeable unless you're looking for it. And even at that, it's to be expected. If it really bugs you that much put some 3/8" hub centric spacers on it.
