Looking to install bora spaces on 2021 stock 2” lift
rims with 275/65 r20 ?
What’s your opinion ?
What’s would the difference between the two ?
Your choice of words ?
Photos if you have any and advice
Also will be towing and will it be okay?
 
Here’s 295/75-18s with 1.5in spacer.

Steering axis is the straight line between your upper and lower ball joints that your wheel pivots around when you turn. Moving the center line of the wheel outward from the steering axis (with spacers or offset rims), called scrub radius, increases the leverage force applied to all steering components, ball joints and wheel bearings. Like putting a longer handled wrench on a stuck bolt to break it loose. Just be advised that more poke will be wearing out your suspension more quickly... Gotta pay to play! :cool:

What about a 1.5 leveling kit for the front? Does that wear the suspension quicker too? Just wondering bc after leveling my truck I am occasionally hearing some popping noises when turning.

I agree. I have the two inch on with Fuel rims only because I have the fender flares installed. Changes the stance. You won't be disappointed on either one!

Not necessarily. If you didn't replace your upper control arms check your upper ball joints, more lift than factory can put them at a funky angle... Aftermarket UCA's correct this but have a much bigger upper ball joint requiring a wheel spacer or aftermarket wheels for tire clearance ...and round and round we go! :LOL: Otherwise I'd suggest re-torquing all your strut bolts/nuts. Anything loose can make popping noises when under the stress of the steering system, especially at low speed/stopped. Any rust powder around a bolt head means it's loose. With the truck on the ground climb under with a light and have someone move the steering wheel back and forth to reproduce the noise and see if you can pin it down. Also recommend an alignment after lift is installed to get the geometry back to spec. Good luck!🤙
 
I ran 1.5” on my 21 for a couple months. Bugged me. I bought the different wheel instead.

I added on 1.75 Bora wheel adapters to give me the extra space for my new Toyo 35” . I needed that extra space for the tires to clear the Ready Lift SST 2.0 upper control arm.

Your truck looks awesome! Do you mind posting some more photos? I’m going to replace my tires with Toyo R/Ts soon and am torn between keeping 295/70r18 on stock suspension or doing the Readylift SST and getting true 35in tires… first world problems. 😆
 
Thanks Trailboss folks going with 2 bora spaces on my 265/60/r20 BfgK02 / hopefully wont need to do any trimming on wheel wells in front <pretty stock
 
Really depends on the offset of your rims and if factory or not. On mine, I run 2" all the way around with after market rims. I wanted the wider stance and clean look. Everyone is different!
