Default wheel spacers ????

Soooo thinking about keeping factory rims but adding a more aggressive aftermarket tire. LOVE the rivet style fender flares but hate the look with the factory wheel set so far in. Will a wheel spacers get the wheel/tire out far enough not to look silly with flares and still be safe.

Just torque them to the right foot pounds and use thread lock so your wheel doesn't pass you on the freeway.

Problem with factory rims is the width, sure you can use spacers to push the wheel farther out but you are still limited to tire width.
