Increased turning radius and a harsher ride (for some reason) were the 2 reasons that I sent mine back.
They were Spidertrax 1-1/4" , 5 on 4-1/2. Order them from spidertrax.com
My install is in the How-To section.

i actually ended up with a tighter turning radius with mine, but that's because my wheels hit the shock before full lock. with the spacer, i can go lock to lock. i have the 1.25" ones on the front and haven't had the first problem. have had them for 4 years or so.
