Nope you shouldn't expirence any rubbing at all, even if you do do hard core wheeling! And so far my rig has been holding up perfectly with the new tires and stuff, I can feel no difference really which is sweet! And as for gas mileage, i haven't noticed any drop with the spacers. But then again i dont have a set up that can calculate or show me exactly what my FJs gas economy is like but i'm sure there are people on here who have done a before and after comparison so i would just search around and see what you can find.
oh and one more thing... have you noticed any serious changes in terms of gas mileage with the wheel spacers like im srue the tires stick out past the fender walls... will this kill my mileage significantly... roughly right now im averaging about 305 to 320 km a tank if im lucky... im from toronto ontario i dont know miles per gallon sorry
ok great yeah i have a body mount chop and did it via laser or plasma cutter cant remember.... i already have the 305 there procomp xtreme at a little less aggressive looking compared to yours... and there is absolutely no rubbing not that i could here... even on my stock uca no rubbing... so i believe if i go purchase a 2.5 inch front levelling kit only and put on 1.25 spider trax wheel spacers i shouldnt experience any issues with rubbing? Unless i do hardcore wheeling of course! and how is your stock suspension set up holding up in general with the extra weight of the tires and the off road abuse?.... thanks for getting back to me really appreciate your help... glad that im not the only one who had ideas for a similar setup as yours and its great to hear that you have no issues!
As long as you have a bmc which you said you do, then you shouldn't experience any rubbing. And that not nubbing includes the uca. I don't know if you have an aftermarket one and even if you have my same brand of tire, but i know that bc indiana on here has the same set up as me and he at first did not have the wheel spacers and because of that, he had minor rubbing on his upper control arm, but after he installed them he had no rubbing at all an niether do I. I do know that some people say 305s will not rub on the uca if you get an aftermarket one and i believe this to be true. But yeah as long as you have the wheel spacers with the bmc, you'll be good, both in the back and the front. (Even though the back at full flex gets pretty close to the stock fender but it still clears it so it's perfect.)
