thats the thing though, i'm getting four spacers for $40. its not a bad deal, plus im going to need them down the road when I get bigger tires.

Robertsk1 It'll look cool, but if you ask me, you're simply adding another point on your axles that can fail. I would discourage adding wheel spacers simply for looks.

New jeep, wheel spacers

Hello,

I'm new to the forum and couldn't find any info on this. I bought a 1998 TJ about a month back. Ive always wanted a wrangler and since I now have a nice paying job I bought one lol. After a few easy mods (bumper,winch,fender flares, and off road lights) I was thinking about giving it more of a brute look. I was wondering if I put wheel spacers on, if that would make it have more of a bruteish look to it.

Thanks for the help
