Spacers

So newbie question here. I have a 98 jeep wrangler on 35in tires. It's not lifted. Would spacers work to prevent the rubbing when I make sharp turns? And if so what kind are good?

Yes they would move the tire out lessening the chance of rubbing.

I'd recommend Spidertrax. What ever you get make sure they're hub-centric.

So just looked on 4wheelparts.com. And they are sold as a set. I would need two sets right? One for the front and one for the back correct?

How do you have 35's on a 98 without ripping your fenders or flares up? Especially with zero lift? If it just rubs a little, washers on steering stops would work... I have a 2.5 inch lift and wouldn't even consider 35's. 32's are the biggest I would run.

35s with no lift???? And nothing is cut? I recommend taking the money you would spend on spacers and getting a lift but yes spacers COULD stop SOME rubbing

This won't help this thread much....but I measured some 35" Swampers once that were worn down to 40-50%. They measured out to be 33".
