Wheel spacer questions...

Im planning on putting 33x12.5" wheels on my stock rubicon wheels... Of what i understand... Im going to need a minor lift and wheel spacers....
Im plannin on buying spidertrax 1.5" spacers...
Will this be enough??
Anyone have any experiences with these??

You don't need to lift it to clear 33's. Spacers will do the trick for you, or new wheels. Rough country also makes hub centric adapters at about half the cost of Spider trax.

I have been running the Rough Country spacers for about a year now without a problem at all. They are basically the same thing as the Spidertrax without the pretty color.

My jeep also handles better with the spacers on the sorry roads I have to drive on.

33 x 12.5 x 18

I put new tires and rims on my jeep without lift or spacers and i had no problems with rubbing or turning. I put 33" Nitto Mud Graplers with Dick Cepeck 18" rims.

That's because you got new wheels. The new wheels have less backspacing than the stock ones do, which replicates the the effect that a spacer would have.

I went with Synergy spacer and I am well pleased. Any made in USA, high grade aluminum, hub centric should work well.
