    Just pick up a pair of 11" wide Marauder wheels. Need 295s or 305s but can't decide.

    No, but I’m not SC’d. If I cold find a pair reasonably priced and I had funds (still waiting stimulus), I would send them out to get widened.

    Yeah but the tire is still wide regardless. 11.6" for a 295.

    You'll need spacers for 11" wide Marauder wheel..11"? Wheel width is not edge to edge, it's bead seat to bead seat so 1/2 inch per edge less. Backspace is mounting surface to wheel edge.

    That's rare to go that wide on stock offset. 10" usually needs a spacer

    Yeah I didn't want them to be that big but they are at a good price. We'll see how much of a spacer I'll need.

    Use this style spacer: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/tgi-140002-2-kit

    No need for stud length worries or replacement.

    The smaller included nuts attach the spacer to the axle and fit within the spacer. Then the MM lug nuts attach the wheel to the spacer lug studs.
