My wife, so I'm told, is planning on buying me a set of Spidertrax 1.5" spacers for the holidays. She's a good gal.
I've seen mentions on the forum suggesting some (many? most?) tire shops won't mount tires on vehicles with spacers. Rather, the shops will apparently only install the tire on the wheel, leaving you to go home and put the wheel on the Jeep yourself.
Does anyone with spacers actually know if this is true? Have you been turned away from local tire shops because of your spacers? If you don't have spacers, have you actually been told this first-hand by someone in a tire shop? It strikes me as ludicrous, but I've seen it mentioned.
PS. I understand the mechanical concerns and so on with spacers, but I like my wheels and will keep a close eye on them, so there's no need to stear the thread into the spacers v. no spacers debate. Thanks again.
