Or Rugged Ridge ... both are made of 6061T6 aluminum and are hub-centric, which are the two critical things you want if you go with spacers.

IMHO, stay away from anyone else besides Spidertrax or Rugged Ridge for spacers.

4fit is gone so...

It's the distance from the inner lip to the mounting point.
Less will push the wheel out more.
Stock is 6+ and keeps the tire under the flare.

4.5 min is recommended.

Contact any of the forum venders.

I have a set that will be available if the buyer falls through on them.

kjeeper10 Spider trax/synergy/Teraflex "hub centric" wheel spacers.

Teraflex/Rock Krawler/AEV 2.5 lifts

Good luck

MTH SpiderTrax are the spacer of choice.

However, you'd do better with an aftermarket wheel. A 2.5" lift will clear up to a 35" tire so long as you've got spacers or aftermarket wheels to push them outward. 33s are probably the most common "upgraded" size.

NCRUBI2012 Spidertrax for the spacers. TF of the lift.

2012 JKU Rubi Stock wheel question...

Hello to all.. I just ordered my first JKUR and have a few questions:

When I test drove the Rubi I noticed the wheels set within the fenders and was wondering if anyone can recommend a wheel spacer brand and size to get the wheels a little outside of the fenders?

I also plan to get a 2.5" lift in the future and wanted to know if i can maybe get a top two brand recommendation and also an upgraded size tire for the stock wheels?

Thanks in advance... Can't wait to get it!
