Thanks. I heard pro comp makes some 15"s too. I was just really keen on the black rock viper but they will only work as a 17" because of the brake clearance issue. That's why I was wondering about spacers.

It would make much more sense to just get the proper backspacing on the wheel to eliminate the problem.

Will this set up be a good entry level lift that will allow for moderate wheeling? I want to keep the cost reasonable. A friend said the coil lift would be a better alternative to the coil spacer lifts. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated..

Thanks,
You can run a 285/70/17 on aftermarket wheels with no lift. A three inch lift will allow you to run 35s if you really wanted....if you want an entry level lift, your friend is dead wrong. The spacer lift is very inexpensive and will give you room for larger tires without affecting your stock suspension too much. I have even heard that the polyeurothane spacers make it quiter in your can because it acts as a barrier between the road, your springs, and frame.
