With spacers, wouldn't the wheel actually be out further than a wheel with correct backspacing? Since in one scenario you are moving the whole wheel and the other just the center hub?
In that, would a 11.5 on a wheel with spacers stick out (roughly) the same as a 12.5 on a wheel with correct spacing?

|scribble77||Although opinions will vary I have always thought of a spacer or adapter as just another failure point. If it was me I would just get the correct when with the proper back spacing.|

|TJe0454||they can be used to move a tire away from the tub to prevent rubbing, or to adapt to a different bolt pattern.|

|InfernoGirl||Yep, they are used to prevent rubbing of wider tires.......|

|InvertChaos||Mainly to push the tires put so they don't rub on control arms and such. Mainly because the person wanted a specific wheel that had too much back spacing.|

Whats the benifit of the wheel spacers or adapters???
I know what wheel adapters do... lets you run differant bolt pattern wheels.... but why so many 1" wheel spacers??? is it more for a tire rub issue or for stability????
