    i was testing my fender clearance the other day after getting finished trimming my fenders, im running 39.5's 8 inch lift, d60 front out of a dodge, i flexed my springs, and when my tires were turned to the right with my passanger side tire stuffed, the big lugs hit the leafs, what im asking is, do i need to get more backspacing on my wheels? i think have soemthing like 3.75, cuz i know i had to do lots of grinding on the d60 to get the 15"s on there, can i run those wheel spacers? i will be wheeling my truck, but i will also be driving it on the highway to get to the wheeling spots, and the streets around my house to look cool in front of the ladies, but i dont htink they would think it was very cool if my front tire fell off, Anyone got some good info on thes wheel spacers, Saftey issues and what not, Sorry so long winded TIA

    'just say no' to wheel spacers
    new offset rims, or bandaid it by setting the steering stops
    one downfall to the 2" narrower dodge 60
