Question Just installed 37/11.5/20 on factory rims

I have slight rubbing at full turn. Here is my question.. Will 1.5 inch wheel spacers fit on the factory wheel studs? How long are our studs? (I dont need the bolts sticking out past the spacer) I know the 2 inch are no issue, but I'm not after that look.

I'm not a huge fan of using wheel spacers on trucks this heavy, that are designed for heavy towing. They are more suited for lightweight stuff like Jeeps. Having wheels with the proper offset for that sized tire is a better option, but definitely not the cheapest. By moving your wheels out with spacers, you are compounding an issue with ball joints and wheel bearings, and they will wear a lot faster than normal...

Yeah I would also skip the spacers. I had a set fail on my old F-150 and having your wheel come off at 50 MPH isn't a pleasant experience. Not a good experience for the pocket book either lol.

You have to cut stock studs off for 2” spacers.
So you definitely have to with 1.5”
“IF” you decide to run spacers : ONLY use hub centric QUALITY SPACERS & DO NOT haul or tow heavy : keeping all Lug Nuts Torqued to Specs.

Lift & Wider Wheels or Stock Height Tires are your Correct Fix.
