    Hey guys, I am kicking around the idea of installing wheel spacers on my 2013 trail 4 runner. The truck has a 3 inch lift. It also has a 4x4 lab front bumper so I am not worried about rubbing up front. But I am wondering if by installing these wheel spacers will the tires run on any other part of the wheel well? Any input would be appreciated

    What is the goal of running the spacers? What size tires and wheels are you currently running?

    Ok good to know. Just wondering if it is worth the custimization. PVT Pablo a have 17 wheels and 265/70RT17 BFG ko2 tires. From what I understand these vehicles are top heavy especially with a roof top tent. I am hoping to make the truck safer with the spacers, and would like a better stance.

    All spacers do is throw rocks down the side of your truck.

    I did have that issue with my 96 4runner. But I have rock sliders on my 13 that stick out enough that I figure they will protect the sides of the truck from that.

    Yeah I'm just reluctant to start cutting away my plastic in my fender wells for little pay off. I had to cut out a good amount of metal from my 96 to make them work. Was hoping with the 13 I would be able to avoid all that. But now that it's in my head probably wont be able to get it out until I do it.
