Wheel Spacers

Will wheel spacers throw off the geometry of my Wrangler? I have 32s no lift or anything but I want my wheels to stick out a little more but not compromise anything.

Shouldn't that's the point of spacers.

There are a lot of opinions on wheels spacers. I'm in the opinion that they are dangerous unless they are constantly checked on. This means you need to constantly remove the wheels to ensure they haven't come loose.

If you're wanting your wheels to stick out past the fender line, you should get rims that have a lower/smaller backspace measurement. This puts the wheel out further.

I have old fashioned spacers. Only 5/8". I constantly check my lugnuts. I completely agree with tj jtr.

I also have 4" backspace rims
