Way to make tires come out further?

hey, I want to make my tires stick out a little past the fender well , without paying $150 for a wheel spacing kit. I'm getting a 3" spindle lift really soon, and I'm wondering if that will help at all?

Thanks guys

yeah, the spindle lift should cause the tires to stick out a bit more... the amount varies between spindle lifts.

Yeah, I just got new Procomp 6089's a couple of months ago. They helped it, but not much. They look B!tching though.

i have not noticed the front wheels sticking out farther with my spindles that some have had but they do some... wheels with less backspacing will give you a wider stance too

The Fabtech spindles will give you about an inch wider stance on each side up front. For the rear tires, you're only options are going to be different wheels or wheel spacers.

how far do you want? pepboys has 3/8ths spacers for 8 bucks a pop, further than that you will need to throw about 130 bucks into it, or you can swap your rearend out for a wider one or have your axle tubes extended which is the best thing since spacers make a weak link

I guess just so they are even with my front, but who knows, maybe 3/8" will be enough. There's a Pepboys right down my street, I'll have to check it out.
