Not yet. I bought the wheel adapters on January 2nd, they were shipped out via UPS on 1/17, and finally got to my house yesterday, the 24th.

Motorsport had to build them once I ordered them, as they didn't have any in stock.

I'm going to install them this weekend. It sucks that it's been around 10 -20 degrees the past week in western PA. Luckily I have a tight 12 x 20 garage to install them in. The garage is attached to the house and isn't heated, but it's usually about 30 degrees in it when it's 10 degrees outside. Nothing a space heater can't help with for a couple hours!

I'll get some pictures up soon. My truck has no lift or suspension mods.

Does anyone know if I'm safe to run 1.5" wheel adapter/spacers with stock suspension with stock wheels and tires (265/75/16) without rubbing?

I plan on doing the PRG leveling kit at some point just not now.

I would bet it would rub pretty bad.

MotorSport Tecg 1.25" wheel adapters

I got all 4 wheel adapters installed over the weekend and took a few pictures. These 1.25" adapters were installed on a 2011 SV 4x4 with no other suspension mods. I'm happy with how the tires stick just past the fenders front and back. Keep in mind that these are 265/70/16 tires, so it would probably look even better with a meatier All Terrain 265/75/16 tire. Sorry for the dirty looking truck, but just isn't practical to wash it around this time.

It could be all in my head, but it seems that the steering feels slightly heavier/more weighted now when turning at low speeds. It's not a bad thing...just an observation. I haven't really driven it too hard around bends to notice any better handling/reduction of body roll, or grip.

If you were to do a slalom with it, I bet it would have slightly improved performance, as the track is now 2.5" wider front and back.

I have the same truck as you CC SV but 2wd not 4wd...anyway, so you say there's absolutely no rubbing with 1.5 inch adapters on your stock 265/60/16 tires with stock suspension?

I have 1.25" wheel adapters and 265/70/16 (original tires) with a stock suspension. I have not seen or noticed any rubbing.
