    I just installed spidertrax 1.25" wheel spacers and the seems to be rubbing inside the wheel welL. Will a heat gun help to eliminate this issue? I'm running stock TRD wheels and tires. Thanks in advance!

    Spacers lengthen the radius of the tire movement from the hub mounting surface. It often makes tire rubbing issues worse. A heat gun can work, others take the mudflaps off.

    What size tires are you running? And how high are you lifted?

    Are you running spacers to clear the upper control arm or just for looks?

    I would remove the spacers personally. Wheels sticking out past fender flairs only causes rocks to fly up and hit the side of your rig.
