    i'm sure every one of you with a k5 has noticed (i dunno with different axles) that the back wheels do not stick out has much in the rear but i would like both the front and the rear to stick out more. i used to have some 33x12.50 thornbird but now i have 35x12.50 bfg mud terrains and they just dont stick out as much and makes turning more of a pain that it was with the thornbirds. anything to fix this? spacers or something? pricing? anything?

    Here are some really cool spacers for your blazer, they range in size from 1"-4". If you want the front and back to be equal get the 1.5" spacer, because the back diff is exactly 3 inches shorter. [/url] www.performancewheel.com/adapters.html

    that would be track width, not wheel base.
