Wheel Spacers

I'm looking to get a little more of an aggressive look to my 01 TJ and I haven't heard anything about these wheel spacers. Does anyone know if they will make the tires rub (stock tires, no lift) or if it is illegal to run them without bigger fender flairs? Or do they compromise the safety of the Jeep?

One more question... I just tried strapping up my rear window for the first time and it so did not look right. I don't remember ever seeing anyone elses window look like a roll of wrapping paper hanging from the two straps. Is there a secret to getting this to look right?

Thanks my Jeep Peeps

Check with your local inspection station if they permit spacers. I understand here in PA they are not permitted. You can go as wide as 10.5" on the stock 8" rims with no rubbing. Generally, the outside of the tread must be concealed by the fender flare. You can purchase wider rims with an off-set to get around the wheel spacers to fit wider tires. However, in Mass., I think they would compel you to cover the tires if they stuck out beyond the fender flares. You can purchase wider flares.

Yes, the back window looks like a large toilet paper roll in it's coiled position. You'll get use to it.

BTW - welcome to WF.

i have a set of 31x10.5 tires and have very little to no rub and a 2" BB. if i went any bigger than i would get a set of spacers or new wheels with the right backspacing.

Welcome, how far from the wachusett brewery are you.
