    Just picked up my stock '13 SR5 today. Thursday I am having some 265/70-17 Falken Wildpeak AT3's mounted to replace stock tires.

    I will eventually be lifting it, but want to start small with some wheel spacers bringing the stock wheels and tires flush to the fenders. I was thinking the 1.5 or 2 inchers should do the job.

    Can anyone offer some advice on if these are good/bad/etc? I've read a few horror stories, but I've also people who swear by them if you properly clean and install to recommended specs (duh).

    I linked to the ones I was leaning towards below at a pretty reasonable price point, but open to recommendations as well. Thanks.

    I realize the price is nice with these, but for something so critical I wouldn't trust less than Spidertrax or G2.

    Buy once. Cry once. Checking out G2. I looked at Spidertrax already as they were listed on Amazon as well.

    alright got the Spidertrax on over the weekend. I'm really happy. It's a subtle bump out. Just enough for me to tell and be happy with it. I can definitely tell a difference in noise coming off the tires now, but the Wildpeaks are not terribly loud. Added photos of stock tires, new tires before the spacers. And new tires with spacers (sorry the photo is not that great).

    I also got my new head unit in with GPS and a dash cam.

    Next up is removal of factory boards and adding some aftermarket rails.

    Also looking at a 5100 kit on the front end to get better handling. Not necessarily interested in lifting anything.
