I would like to widen the stance just a little more maybe 1.25 or 1.5 with these stock tires 265/70/16 on trd pro 16' wheels and wonder if anyone has this setup or could get some input or advice that would be great

any pro and cons in doing so? any rub?

Stock suspension 2018 OR. Don't plan on lifting or changing tires anytime soon. May upgrade to bigger tires down the road maybe 265/75/16 or 255/85/16.

Before and After pics spacer/wheel pics please

Thanks in advance TG3!

If you decide to run spacers, which a lot of people will not recommend, myself included (even though I ran them for like 100K) go with the spidertrax 1.25" spacers. Dont cheap out, get the known to be good spacers as they could be the difference between 4 and 3 wheel drive. I dont have any pics , just wanted to add my .02 on a brand and size!

I did this exactly, 1.25 spidertrax on stock 2017 OR, here are 2 rough pics, stock suspension, rims etc.

I did put aftermarket rims on now with the spacers and the front rubbed, even with stock tires and a suspension lift...crazy but the rim offset plus spacers really messed that up.

But on stock it works.

Thanks for the input sir. Not recommended because of safety? and what do you mean by diff btw 4 and 3 wheel drive? bc of spacers? apologize for the
ignorance

Super easy install just take off the wheels, put them on and put wheels back on, on top of them. Ride felt slightly diff when turning with a wider stance...could be all in my head tho.
And he means one of your wheels might fall off, 3 wheel instead of 4 wheels to your truck lol, spacers but cheap spacer especially can fall/break off and then your wheel goes bye bye. So locktite them which comes with spidertrax, and they are hub centered so the bolts don’t shear, and recheck/torque the bolts every so often to make sure nothing is loose.

3 wheel because if you cheap out and get crap spacers or install them wrong, you can lose a wheel going down the highway.
