Thats a lot of crap all bolted together. I would definitely take off at least on set of spacers.

lol yea thats what i siad to him. with the wide tires on them rims and no spacer you have to suck them together and they are tight together. that gonna create some problems with heat??

Without space the sidewalls will kiss and cause problems. Better to run singled up until he can get the correct wheels or tires.

Having the rear duals touching is a huge no-no. It builds a ton of heat and WILL lead to a blowout. Im saying that all thoes aluminum spacers are also a no-no, its just asking for problems.

It collects trash from the road and kills tires.

If a revenue agent notices it may get red tagged.

Most duals will single up on light trucks and still meet the weight rating on the sidewall - legal to move.

If they are loaded near rating and run in warm weather they will get hot! Kissing is worse as it will wear the rubber off and then the cord and drop both at the same time. Of course the boys that ran that way were always in shape to donate large amounts of money to the revenue rangers.
