anyone ever used spacers from performance wheel or spacers in general? i am wanting to push the tires out about 1.5" so the tire is flush with the fender flares that i put on,I am concerned how strong they will be.

Any spacer under 2 inches you will have to cut your studs down. I have hubcentric spacers all the way around my truck. I have towed with them. Cant really tell there on there. Truck just seems normal. My buddy has 2 inches on his dodge, and has towed very heavy, and hasnt had a problem.

I used Performance Wheel 1.5" spacers on an OBS Powerstroke.

9200 lbs., 49" tires.

I'd do it again.
how many miles and did you ever have wheel bearing problems?

I probably put nearly 20K miles on the truck like that.

Wheel bearing problems? Nah. Fixed spindles in the front with huge tapered roller bearings don't care about loading. The ball joints probably weren't too happy but they were still in good shape when I sold it.
