Spacer for oem rims and tyres

Hi guys,

I was wondering what would be a good spacer size to be installed on oem rims and tyres of Jk Sahara for them to be just a little out of the fenders?

Any pictures?

If I were doing a spacer I would only consider using the Spidertrax brand. Very trusted name & super high quality.

yes spidertrax.. avoid spacers if if you can but if you absolutely must use them then spidertrax is the best way to go

Why to avoid, does it do any harm to the car?

When the owner doesn't maintain "ROUTINE" maintenance--ie-checking the adapter (spacer) attachment lugs for "MAINTENED" 90/115 ftlbs torque and thats every, AT LEAST 5000 miles !!

Their safety is as/more important as the jeeps WHEEL ATTACHMENT LUG NUTS !

FYI, none of the wheel/adapter lugs, should be attached using an IMPACT GUN, they should be torqued on final install-EVERY TIME !
