Default Wheel Spacers

I have an 2006 model on 33's with stock wheels and I am getting wheel spacers. I was wondering if 2" or 1.5" would look better. Any suggestions?

First off are you 2wd or 4wd? Second is are you leveled? If you are 4wd and leveled then either spacer will work for you but be sure not to try and save money if you are going to buy them. I had 1.5" on mine and took them off for the winter just so I wouldnt sling salt all over the side of my truck. The look is good but there was always that looming though in my head that one would fail and I would lose a wheel. Just my .02

I personally would never recommend using spacers. But if it's really a "must", go with whatever floats your boat more. As far as which "would look better", it depends on what wheel you have currently, the offset of the wheel and 2wd or 4wd as mentioned (KCCO by the way) above. Without more information, your question is way to generic.

1.5 I think is just right. But make sure to get the "hub centric" spacers.

It's a 4WD and it's leveled. Thanks for the input!

I wouldn't go larger than 1.5" for wheel spacers. That's what I have and it looks good on my truck. I had to shave the wheel studs just a little so they wouldn't rub the spacers, but it wasn't much.

From my personal experience I wouldn't run wheel spacers. I just had my pair shear the studs off. But if you are gonna do it anyway I wouldn't go more them 1.5 and get a good pair not a pair off eBay. Make sure to check and torque them down regularly
