    Hey Guys,

    I’ve just ordered some Bora wheel spacers which I should be getting this week. I still have my stock wheels and tires and wanted to know if people think the spacers would look stupid without MT/AT tires.

    I do plan on upgrading my tires but not for a couple months $$$

    Thanks

    Well, ya got those pocket flares on there with stock tires, so you need to push em out there a little bit ... Otherwise it looks like a fat girl with little feet ... 12.50’s down the road will definitely help ... Make sure you buy spacers based on future tire size, not stock ... A level with Bils would help too

    I like the Metaphor . Yeah I just put the flares on recently in preparation for the spacers. My question is whether people think it will look okay with the wheel spacers and stock tires until I upgrade. The spacers I bought were 1.75.

    Does anyone have pictures of a setup with spacers and stock tires?

    Yes please put spacers in! I hate flares and tucked in wheels as much as a hate body lift and not doing the bumpers as well!

    Yeah I'll follow this for some recommendations. I have a stock truck with the bills on for leveling. My truck also has fender flares but don't know what size tires or spacers are needed to get the right look.

    I've got the 1.5" Bora spacers on 275-65-20 tires for my winter setup. That size tire is just a hair taller than stock. They still look good and don't look lost buried inside of the Bushwacker pocket flares.

    Can you post a side shot looking down the wheel wells? I have the 4" ReadyLift with 275/65/20 Cooper Discoverer STT Pros with factory fender flares, and although they don't look too bad after the lift, they do look a little tucked. I'm debating on getting 1.5 bora wheel spacers or just waiting until these tires need to be replaced and going with 295/65/20s.

    6EE199C7-DE5B-44AB-89C2-487F77A4E3AF.jpeg Not stupid at all....Should look 10X better than the stock stance tucked in under those flares. Just like BOWERSFJ said above, plan for the future size and going to 12.5 makes a huge difference over stock stance. I have no flares and my wheels are stock offset, but with 305/55’s the tires poke out about 1/2” from the fender. So for reference, this size tire would most likely sit dead flush on oem flares. If I had spacers like you spec’d, my tires would stick out 2” or so.
