I wouldn't recomend wheel spacers period.Your looking to have problems with the setup in the future.Wheel barings and studs.It is just too much weight on the studs itself.I would get new rims.

Might be ok dunno.The tires might hit your control arms.That is why I say get a new rim with a negative 12 offset. I wouldn't go more then that because it might rub on the inside of your fender wall.

Well if your going to save up money for rims then i would say do the spacers for now and put the 12.50's on there.Don't leave them on there for a long time though.It will be fine for a while.

Trust me I know how it is.When I want something I want it yesterday lol.When I bought my truck I told my wife I am putting a lift,tires,and rims on it soon.It wasn't a week and it was lifted with rims and tires lol.

Spacers that give you the change in offset you need will just cause those wobble and bearing problems. I'd start measuring, talking with some tire and wheel shops, and determine what you need for offset and backspacing + a level or lift to fit that size tire without rubbing.
