I installed 1.25" spacers to clear my SwayLOC passenger arm. I like the look of the OEM Gambler wheels and didn't want to exchange them out for aftermarket wheels with less backspacing vs. the 5.25" on the Gamblers. The spacers/adapters bring my net backspacing down to 4" :).

Yeah I do t want to mess with that stuff. This is my daily driver and I want new rims anyway

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.

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?
