I'm close to wrapping up restoration on my 89 Laredo (trying to keep this one close to original) - I say close because of my wheel choice, which is where I need help.
After a little light body work, new paint and decals and a fresh set of oem spec tires - my 24 year old rims looked like garbage. I looked into wheel reconditioning and factory knock offs...then I came across a set of 5 reconditioned gray TJ rims that I feel in love with. My wife wasn't happy, but I grabbed them (outside the budget).
So thinking that they were the same size and width as my stock rims, it would be a no brainer swap. Nope, rookie move. That's when I learned the TJ axels are wider so the offset on the rim TJ rim is much shallower. If I out these on my YJ without a spacer, they would tuck in under the wheel well. Not good.
Anyone happen to know what size spacer (1.5, 2 inch), is correct to help maintain the stock stance that I have now? I checked the threads and wasn't able to find a stock to stock size to reference.
Really appreciate the help! Love the board, it's helped me through quite a few fixes.
