That's encouraging to hear. I was looking at some 8.5" wheels and was wondering about rubbing. Why do you want spacers to put those wheels closer to the inside of your fenders? And one more question: what springs, shock are you running?

Im running the ksport pro coilovers right now. They are set very low, almost as low as the front will go actually.

I was considering it just for a small visual difference on the front and rear, but i havent put the spacers on yet and might not.

As for rubbing i had one spot on the rear rub, but it was a spot that wasnt flush like it was supposed to be, a rock or something must have pushed it out, so i simply knocked it back.

keep in mind my rear shocks on are a stiff dampening and may contribute to the lack of rubbing.
