Yes, because that is changing offset.

The washers will only help you if you have a very minimal rub on your steering stops. If you're tires are hitting your suspension components, you likely need new wheels.

Yes, spacers will do the job, but be aware, you need to check em for torque every tire rotation. So there's a maintenance factor...

Also, all spacers are not created equal. If you plan to go that route, buy some good ones, like the Spidertrax. And a lot of peeps swear by hub-centric.
Yup thanks today I went to off road where house and got some good ones not spiders but that's what the hot girl that work there say lol I pay 105 with tax

We had two feet of water covering our downtown area, and over 15' near the river.

The rub will be someone else's to worry about, but good luck with yours.

Just a thought.
Cool thanks. I will try this...

Thanks... So do u think that a 1.5 wheel spacer for the front will work out fine, till I save up for a lift and new wheels?

JKUR10A I have an 08 JK, and put 33's on my jeep with no lift. I have the same rub. It doesn't effect driving only sharp turns. The rubbing is on front end parts and at low speeds won't damage either the front end or the tire. If you are concerned with it, your choices are wheel spacers or a lift.
