1BLKJP If you are going to use spacers then I would suggest at least using Red Lock-Tight on your existing lugs to the spacers and also use a gun or at least torque them down with a torque wrench to make sure they are where they need to be.

I run spacers on mine as a trail rig and have never had a problem. The spacer adapter however that you are looking for is a 5x4.5 to 5x5 not a 5x5.5. I know that Spidertrax does make those adapters.

firefighter8816 I did the same thing too. I got a set of 16x8 JK wheels for my TJ but desided not to do it after all. The spacers are $200 the tires are $1,200 and you need to modify your TJ tire carrier to hold the JK wheels. In all I found out it will cost me about $2,500. For that price I'll buy new wheels and tires for my TJ and a few other toys.

Also if any one wants them I now have 5 stock JK wheels for sale.

4point Its fine, but tires in that size tend to run a little more costwise.
