Is it me or do I need to install wider spacers on the back wheels since they seem deeper than the fronts ?


Has anyone done this ?


Should I add a 1/4", 1/2" more on the rears than the fronts ?

I'm sure it's been done! I'm not too sure on Rams but I know that older Chevrolet's had wider front tracks to give the truck a tighter steering circumference and to help with on road stability around corners. I'm sure Ram had common thinking when designing their trucks.

Ram 1500s have a .9" wider front track by design, as shipped by Ram. You only need different spacers if you feel the tracks should be the same. It really doesn't matter much.

That's my understanding of the value .9, yes. ;)

So the front wheels stick out 0.45" farther than the rears.

I decided to get some spacers.

I know I need Hub Centric 5X139.7

What is the stud size ?

Any suggestions on where to buy ?
