My apologies, they are in fact 1.25" spacers. I could have paid to have 1" spacers made and would have preferred that size. I wanted to stop the rubbing while keeping the wheels under the fenders.

Rvp523 is the 285/70R17's the next size up from the 265/70R17's?

overblown Yup, my 285/70/17's do the same thing. Some guys get away with no rubbing at all in that size and others like myself don't. I really think it comes down to the brand of tire as they are not all exactly the same size they just fall within a certain parameter. I have some spacers sitting here in a box but have yet to decide if I'll use them. It's not a big deal so far.

microage97 I went with 265R70/17s as they were like 40.00 each cheaper. No issues. I think 11" is the widest you can go without rubbing.

Farnham21 Depends on size of tire

To put a bigger aftermarket tire on my stock rim will I need wheel spacers?
