i think the problem with.5 inch spacers is you cant get hubcentric ones, then you will have more problems...

----------

actually i take that back you could, but .5 isnt gonna give you much of a look change...

5 inches is just to much. Better chance of them breaking on you. But it also depends what kind of off roading you do.

looking at your avatar, your tires are perfect. they are exactly where they should be - right on the edge of the fender. Anything past the outer edge looks "bro" to me.
