Opinions please wheel/tire/spacers

I plan on running the stock 17" wheels plastic dipped satin black with 285/75/17" tires, and 1-1/2 spacers. I am running the Teraflex leveling kit.
1 question I have is that what brand spacer and if there are any drawbacks to using them. Other than that does this sound like a reasonable combo? TIA Mike.

You're good.

Spidertrax makes the most popular spacers for Jeeps. See here:

2007-Up Wrangler JK & Unlimited

The only drawback to em is that they require periodic maintenance (check for torque). Other than that, since you're running em with stock wheels that have 6.25" bs, you'll effectively be at 4.75" bs...no problems.

Don't forget to add $200 for spacers.

And FYI, that'd be right about what I spent to get 5 new 15" wheels and five new 33x12.5R15 DuraTracs. No spacers needed and then you sell your old wheels to get a few bucks back. Just sayin'.
