Why do you want wheel spacers?

Cause they make your rig look sick man. I just got new rims and they have more back spacing then my old ones so they wheels stick out more and it gave my jeep a nicer stance. Im thinking about getting 1.25 spacers to man let me know which ones you go with.

1.25 is what I'm leaning more towards cause I don't need to much, I don't want my wheels sticking to far out though

Ive been wondering why most companies sell their spacers in pairs rather then sets of 4. Dont most people who buy spacers want to put them on all 4 wheels rather then 2?

Do they rub on the LCA? If they do then just add washers to your steering stops. Costs all of 5 cents.

Do you just add washers until it doesn't rub

Yes, but keep in mind if you add a lot then you lose turning radius.
