Default Wheel Spacers
Interested in thoughts on adding wheel spacers to get a more aggressive look since there seems to be complications with going to bigger tires. Any insights that I need to know about wheel spacers?

Spacers might give you some of the same problems if you offroad since the tires will no longer tuck into the wheel wells when compressed.

Ive ran a 2" spacer on my 11 since new. Three raptor runs and no issues at all. Make sure you do your research and get a quality hubcentric spacer.

I considered spacers/hubcentric & wheelcentric bolt on adapters but just went with an aftermarket wheel. I've ran them before on high powered sports cars. You should be fine imo if torqued correctly. Especially for street use

WheelAdapter.com is your number one source for wheel adapters, wheel spacers, used wheels, and wheel studs.

Where I got mine.

I won't be doing any hard-core off-roodng because I have other off-road vehicles, so probably just street use and some gravel roads for now.

The stock offset will give you the least amount of issue with 37's. Pushing them out 2" would put the wheels 3/4" past where a Method wheel would sit making 37's pretty difficult to fit. Anything is possible. Just depends on how sharp you want to turn or how much you want to cut.

As Customwheels said, stock offset will give the the least rubbing. Pushing the tires out further is just going to make it worse.
