Any input on wheel spacers...

Ok, first I will apologize if this has been covered before, but I am curious as to whether there are any issues with putting wheel spacers behind my stock rims to get a little wider track. Will there be any significant stress on the CV's or front Diff? I'm only considering this because I just don't have the coin for new rims and tires...

Go easy on me....

I've been running 1 1/4" spacers (bolt on adaptors) for almost a year now with no problems. As far as additional stress on components, its the same as wheels with a different offset. I check both sets of lugs every couple of months, but have never found them loose. When checking I remove the spacers and reinstall them with blue loctite, just to be sure. As for saving $, well, my billet spacers were 200$, you could probably find steel rims for that $.
Sorry, no pics. Before I ordered mine I put the truck on jack stands and played with the wheels and a tape measure to find the spacer thickness I wanted. More than 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 will put your tires out past the fender flares. With my 1 1/4s my tires (275/70-16s, stock wheels) are right at the edge of my flares.
