If your getting new rims, you don't need spacers. Just go with better back spacing and it will look fine if you want them to stick out some more. I know for 12.50 wide tire 3.75 to 4.00 works well. How wide of a 31" tire are you looking to get?

go with 1.25" spacers from Spidertrax. www.spidertrax.com

nothing wrong with them if you maintain them, check them frequently and watch for cracks. torque them properly, use loctite and follow the directions.

if you go 1" or smaller, you need to trim the studs in front, if you go 1.5" or larger you need to install new studs in the rear. soo....1.25" is the sweet spot.

if you're getting new wheels, then just get wheels with 3.75-4.25" of backspacing.
