Exclamation spacer questions

hey guys i have a 95 yj with a 4inch lift i recently put 33 12.50 tires on it im looking at wheel spacers im looking at maybe the 1.5 inch spacers do you think this will be enough to prevent rubbing or should i go with the 2 inch spacers. second question im trying to find out about these particular spacers is im still using stock wheels i know the thread pattern is 5 x 4.5 but is the new tread pattern going to be the same. 4 Jeep Wrangler Wheel Spacers Adapters fits all TJ YJ 1.5 inch | eBay

the bolt pattern will be the same...5 on 4.5...but you wont stop the rubbing in a flex position if you had 10" spacers. 4" lift isnt high enough for 33's if you dont want them to rub...i have 8.5 inches of lift with35's and i get them to rub all the time.
If you are talking about rubbing when you turn, just run the steering stops out to stop that from happening

A new set of black pro comp steel wheels 15x8 with a 3.75BS would cost you about $200 that would be a better bet. Really 8.5 in and you rub with 35s, WOW I got 7 in lift and was running 36s with no rubbing. Ive sense got metalcloak set and 37s still no rub.

im running the same set up and mine is rubbing the springs,,,,is that what ur talking about ??

i was thinking about spacers too but i know we would be better off with the rite wheels with proper back spacing.

thanks banks316 for letting us know about the proper back space..
