Anyone ever see JK 1.0" spacers? To fit 275/70/18 tires.

Narrowest I've seen was 1 3/8". Most are 1 1/2" or more.
Looking for 1" only, to fit 275/70/18 tires on stock Sahara rims. '12 JKU
Looking to push out the tires a tad for a better look (wider stance) and no rub on the front.
Know I can washer the steering stops, but that won't help the look.
Also want to keep strain the bearings down to a minimum, also hence the 1" spacers.

Thanks.

Spacers won't put anymore strain on the ball joints then less BS's wheels.

What dia do those tires equate to?

They make spacers in a few different sizes.
Just make sure you get a brand that's hub centric and not lug centric like SPIDERTRAX/SYNERGY/TF etc.

Good luck

Unhappy

It's a little taller than 33" (like 33.2") and 10.8" wide.
So a 33x10.8x18 I guess.

The JKU is a DD, so don't wanna push the tires out any more than I need to for clearance. I figure 1" would be perfect. With the wider tires and a 1" spacer they'd stick out 1 3/8" past the 255/70/18 that are on it now. A 1 1/2" spacer would put them at 1 7/8" out. Nearly 2". That'd put them out past the stock Sahara flares.

But I've never seen 1". Even 3/4" spacers would be fine. Just may have to go with the 1 1/2", that's all I've been able to find.
