dually spacers?

I want to run a tad bit bigger tire.... like a 255 or 265 and I know I will need a rear spacer.
? is, will the spacers affect the towing ratings? meaning are they able to handle the serious loads that would be put in the truck? I tow pretty heavy and I dont want to worry about the spacers snapping or somethin!

I was thinking like a 2" spacer but I dont know if that would be overkill or if they even make anything smaller?

Where would I find some spacers?

Thanks
~Jim

Re: dually spacers?

we did some on a lifted dually. they were 2 inch ones and the tires were 325/80-16. he had about an inch between them. internet is always a good place to find them. i would imagine the towing rating or weight rating would be affected because of the added stress

02 f-250 xlt with leather, BTS trans. dp-tunes, afe. 40" bfg km2 on some 20's. and a bunch of other stuff that doesent make it any faster.

Re: dually spacers?

You will not need a spacer for 255's. There is enough room even loaded to the max for 255's. Now for 265's you will need a spacer, you can get a 1.5" spacer. The ones I have are hubcentric. The hubcentric is a little harder to install, after you remove the outer wheel, you pull the axel out, install the spacer and replace the axel, then bolt the outer wheel to the spacer.

I have had 7200 lbs in the bed of the truck and the spacers had no issues. They have been on the truck for 4 years.

Re: dually spacers?

Wheel Spacers by Fearless Fred Goeske! He's the guy who started it all with www.wheeladapters.com. Just fill out his form on his website and he'll personally call you back and answer any questions you have. I've had his for over 5 years now and have had ZERO problems. He also makes them to order and they're hub/wheel centric for our wheels. I haven't heard of anybody else offering their wheel spacers as hub/wheel centric. And trust me...you want them to be!
