wheel spacer help needed

I have a 14 JKUR on order.. will do a 2.5 lift... have 17x9 wheels on hand with a +10mm offset and 5.5" backspace.... plan to run 35x12.5 tires.... I think that I am going to need at least a 1" wheelspacer... is that correct.. any help would be appreciated ...

Why not find a wheel with the correct backspace ?

And you cannot buy a 1" wheel spacer. Minimum for the JK is 1.25". Also, if you do sapcers, DO NOT cheap out and get the generic silver aluminum ones like Rough Country's. Get some Spidertrax, Teraflex, or Alloy USA

Why not? because of the stud size?
You can buy as small as .75 spacers.

It seems like motorsport tech is not that recognized among jeep owners, however, they put out high quality spacers and adapters, all hub and wheel centric. They do their own stuff here in the USA. Their BORA line has from .75 to 2" spacers for the jk, both hub and wheel centric.

Their machining is high quality, I ran their spacers on my rx8 and wheel adapters on my land rover.

I went with Spidertrax 1.5". They are quality pieces. I would highly recommend them.

Does anyone know what the proper amount of torque is for the studs connecting to the wheel spacer, and what torque is required for the rim connecting to the wheel spacer?

Thanks!

Torque wheel spacers to 90 then double check after 100 miles at 80. Wheel should be torqued to between 80-90.
