Wheel Spacers Q & A (If you have a question, post it here)
Anyone using the 1.25” wheel adapter with the stock rims and 265/70R17’s know how much clearance they have to the steering knuckle? If you do, could you measure it?
I would be grateful… I’ll come over and mow your yard!
I’m considering a Centerline Wheel, the “Stingray III” 17x8” with a 5” backspacing. According to my calculations (if they’re correct) this rim will sit in ¼” further than the above set-up. Do you think this will fit?
I’m not sure if this will provide enough clearance for the above tire and will be a PITA if I have to order it and mount a tire to find out.
Hey everyone, Im new to the forum! I just got my Black 2006 Commander last week, prior to driving and building up my old 1999 Wrangler Sahara. I really like the look of the stock wheels on the commander. however i would like them to sit flush with the body rather than being so inset. I found these 1 inch thick wheel spacers made out of billet aluminum, (is that strong/safe?) for a 5x5 wheel bolt pattern, and i was curious if any of you run something similar? if i were to install these would my tires rub? I would really appreciate some input!
I found those exact ones but without the "spidertrax" expensive name that jacks up the price. They run $69.99 for our bolt pattern and you can select either 1 inch thick, 1.25 inch thick, 1.5 thick, 1.75 thick, and 2.0 inchs thick! I just wanted to use the 1inch spacer to make my tires flush with the body, i just need to know if my tires will rub the fenders at full turn or anything among those lines! if anyone runs wheel spacers like those PLEASE give me some input, im on the brink of ordering them!
i cant post a freakin URL yet because i havent made 4 posts on this forum, dumbest thing i have ever come across.. but if you go to google and type in ezaccessories, it should pop up, and it was under wheel adapters. let me know if you find out anything, because i want to order them tomorrow! gotta find out if they will clear though!
Nice Find! What size tires are you running? We have the 265/65r17 Revos and I think last week we may have rubbed but I couldn't find any evidence in the wheel wells where we made contact. Here is my though though that since we are already close and by adding a 1.25 spacer the wheel will be rotating on a larger radius from the center of rotation (ball joints) and I think it will actually cause more rubbing when the wheel is turned and the suspension is compressed? I have never run a wheel spacer on a front wheel before so I'm not sure on this.....any thoughts?
