Got wheel spacers on today

Wish I did a before and after from same look but since I didn't I just had to use and old pic for before. But it looks a lot better not having the tires under the fenders so much

AFTER

Synergy, thats what my local off road shop carries in stock. I am amazed at how well they rode. Actually seems like a smoother ride on the highway after they were installed but had the tires rotated and that may have been it but I like them a lot so far.

1 1/2" thick is the best because that will cover your current lugs bolts without modifying them. Want USA made, aluminum to decrease weight, and hub centric for strength. I seen a lot of good reviews on Synergy and Spidertrax

5X127 to 5X127 or 5x5 to 5x5 for Jeep JK 2007-2011

Congrats, I guess this solved your rubbing issues... I will personally try the steering stop trick and if that doesnt work out for me I'll give the spacers a shot...
