Does anyone use spacer on the rear to match wheel base to front? I plan on running 35 with 15 x 10.
typically no one does as they were made that way for a reason
And what reason is that?
I am planning on adding spacers on my DD because I think it will look much better.
No but really... what 'reason' do you think they had?
I have a set of spacers that are for metric lugs and I have 9/16 studs so they won't work. Or it could be the other way around. I would have to check again. So if you are interested in spacers I am interested in selling mine. Let me know and maybe mine will work for you. Then I can get the ones I really need.
I don't like the way the rear end look sucked in
The reason gm designers made the front axle 1" wider on each side than the rear is to help out the turning radius a little. These are wide trucks
and need all the help they can get in the turning department. Adding spacer or going to a van width 14ff rear will make it a little more stable but decrease the turning radius some.
I say, turning radius be damned, LOL
I like the look of the front and rear wheels tracking the same.
I used to run spacers on my old 77 K5, had a 12 bolt rear end in it, but it was my DD, people used to ask me how did I get the rear to match the front. So I say it does make a difference as far as looks go and as far as turning radius you are still driving a fullsize so what the yeck. I would also like to add that it drove exactly the same as when it was without the spacers. 1 1/2" on each side will put you at exactly the same width as the front
