State Inspection laws and use of wheel spacers
I realize that the inspection laws differ from each state. Here in PA we unfortunately have some tough laws.
I'd really like to add a set of 1.5 inch spider trac spacers to my 2007, only the PA inspection law won't allow "Spacers over 1/4 inch in thickness used to increase wheel track."
I'm wondering if they are referring to those slip over aluminum disks you just slide over the existing studs and the wheel holds in in place or does that include something like the 1.5" bolt on spacers? I can call my local garage but I think they will say anything over 1/4" period.
Does anyone in PA know? I found a thread on another Jeep site that said "My brother-in-law does PA state vehicle inspections and we were talking about it. He said spacers will NOT pass inspection. Then I mentioned the Spydertrax spacers and how they mount and he said there should be no problem with them since they give you "new" lugs to mount the wheels onto.The concern with regular spacers is that they reduce the amount of threads that the lug nuts have to grab onto so, they fail inspections. Spydertrax don't so that changes things a bit. Now, that is only 1 inspection mechanics opinion"
