wheel spacer?

MY question is,I just installed some Bushwacker pocket style flares today and in my opinion they stick out too much past my tires.I have 295/75/16's.I dont think the 1/4" spacers will do much.Has anyone used the 2" wheel adapters?Any pics of pocket style flares installed would be great.I'm just not sure if I like them.I think it might be the contrast of black flares on a yellow truck.

did you have to change your studs, or are you runnin an adaptor?

the problem with spacers is that somtimes they make your wheel/tires feel out of balance, and sometimes the lugs will loosen up. that been said, i am runnin a 1/4 inch spacer between my rear wheels on my chev for clearance between tires, and i'm not having any problems with it as of yet, and i do tow heavy with that truck.

I have head putting locktite on the bolts helps keep the bolts from loosing up on you so you only need to check them at rotations
