On a 04 Rubicon. I am doing 4" lift, 1" BL, 1" MML. In end running 35's for sure. Can I safely use spacers to keep my MOAB wheels? Or is this scary and shunned upon. Better to run correct offset wheel? Really like the stock Moab wheels and look it would keep my jeep build at. Plan on running 315/75-16 Duratracs but maybe KM2's not sure just yet

better, yes, scary maybe, doable yes. I haven't heard any TRAGIC stories about spacers yet.

Thanks. Deff doesn't seem many people do it which sucks they look good. I like steel wheels an all but sort of played out. Cheap fix and easy to replace if needed though. Dime a dozen and cheaper tires I suppose w 15's

Yeah, but aftermarket wheels are prob gona be heavier, I don't know the #s though. alot of guys run spacers actually, most of them are just not on WF. haha. I know a few.

You are good to go. Spacers suffer from bad hype. Go with spidertrax, they are well made and have a good rep.
I've been running 35's on moabs with spacers for a year and about to go up to 37" with no worries.

What size spacers are recommended to run 35" rubber on a Rubicon TJ?

I have 315/75-16 MTRs on stock rubicon wheels. No rub issues, adj trackbars. It is tight though. I like that the tires barely stick out from the stock flares.
