Wheel Spacers?
Im considering wheel spacers because while out on trails making sharp turns are a pain because of the inside tire scrubbing. Now im taking longer than normal to get going and im eating the inside (knobs) pretty bad. Anything too consider while adding them? Pros Cons? Thanks

What size tires are you running?

The best way to make it so your tires do not rub is to add washers to the stops.

You will get responses advising AGAINST them......

but I will tell you had I not got the (5) wheels for 350 bucks from craigslist (2 days old as well! ), I would have went the spacer route with only a hub centric design, no lug centric design (still may after these cheap chinese made wheels start degrading, kept my stocks for that reason).

The only two I saw that were USA alloy and Spidertrax. Both, as I have read, have outstanding quality. Good luck. I think as long as you go hub centric design, and install and torque as specified by the manufacturer, you will be good. A set runs ~ $200 in change

While OE Jeep wheels are indeed hub centric, the vast majority of aftermarket wheels we run are all lug centric. Lug centric wheels work just fine. :)

I think I saw some Spidertrax for sale for like $50 for the four in the selling section on here.
