wheel spacers?

anyone ever used them? i am wanting to push the tires out 1.5" to make them flush with the fender flares but i am concerned about how strong they will be.

I've always heard bad things about them. They say they're hard on bearings and ball joints. I have no personal experience with them.

I wouldn't run spacers or anything on the front of one of these trucks.... IMHO spacers are for the rear on duallys only...

I am running 18x9 37x13.50 w/ 5" backspacing... I have a set of 35x12.50 on 16x10 w/ 4.5" backspacing also (I personally like the way these look a lot better)
