If you're not rubbing at full lock, I wouldn't worry about wheel spacers.

ok thats what i thought but wanted @ make sure thanks! at full lock it rubs sway bar a tit but not really conserned about that cause i hardly ever turn that shapr ant way should i be cocerned about the contact with the sway bar? i was mostly concerned with the a-arm clarence as it stands there is maybe a 1/4 in. gap dont know if it will rub as the suspension rolls under normal driving i have had tires on for 2 days now and so far no evidence of a rub. should i not be concerned about the a-arm? thanks again for the help fellow RAMerz

Not a big fan of wheel spacers tend to bring nothing but problems but if you stay strictly on road ya might be able to get away w/ it. My suggestion would to just be get the right wheels

I agree...eventually I would want to get a set of wheels that change the offset to a bit less positive measurement.

But for now, a spacer sounds like a good idea. I'd move the wheels out a bit with a set.

leave it be. most people go very slow whenever they are at full lock and a little rub on sway arm is not bad. a 1/4 inch spacer will solve your problems and after shipping i got mine for 17 bucks. unless you get as built billet aluminum it will take your balance away. i lucked out my balance is only bad around 55.
