This is a timely discussion.
I bought my truck used and it has the Nitto tires on it (295-75/R17D). You can not put a half dollar edge wise between the tires at the bottom when unloaded. The previous owner ran the truck this way for some time, but I am concerned about the tires heating and having a sidewall blow out.
The spacers that are sold at that website start at $175/pair! Personally, I do not like the bigger tires, so I have to decide whether or not to buy spacers or new tires.
