Had some spidertrax spacers on my DD for years. No issue. Sold that jeep and the spacers went with it.

Jason1348 04-24-2013 09:38 PM

Cool cause I like my moabs just like little wider stance

Jason1348 05-07-2013 05:07 AM

Anymore reviews?

I have spidery tax on my 2002 tundra and my son has them on his 2000 TJ (which he wheels the crap out of). Both at DDs and neither of us have had issues.

Oops. Spider Trax. Damn auto spell

I have a stock 99 2.5 TJ Sport with 31's on 15x8 Canyon's. What size wheel spacer should I use to stop rub on full lock?

You should spend $.25 and install a couple washers behind your steering stops. Wheel spacers would be a waste of money

Agreed that at stock height, if the only thing you are concerned about is tire rub, go the washer route. A 31" tire at stock height will look slightly more aggressive at the stock location, at least IMHO.

I put on 2.5" with some OME equipment and my stance on my stock Canyons was not unlike a roller skate. I went with the 1.25" Spider Trax and love the new stance. I haven't taken my proper Afters yet, but will post when I have time. Only had them on a few weeks, but after the required 100+ miles, I checked all the lugs and everything was tip top. Still drives great at 75 on the interstate, so other than eliminating my tire rub and pushing the wheels out a little, they are invisible to me (a good thing).

What could be a stupid question from a newbie but what size washers and where do I find the steering stops?

I run spacers with my moabs since they have a crappy backspacing, but I really like the look of them.
I've ran them on my DD for over 2 years without an issue. Buy quality ones and install them correctly or you can be in for a ride you'll want to forget.
Do a search on how to adjust steering stops and how to install wheel spacers and you'll find a ton of info on the subjects.

How does this work?

Jason1348 05-15-2013 11:48 PM

He doesn't like spacers so 2 keep from rubbing he suggested putting washers behind steering stops

Jason1348 05-15-2013 11:49 PM

Its not rubbing im trying to fix its getting the tires to stick out more with my moabs cause in ohio deep ruts

Bangert 05-15-2013 11:51 PM

I had the 1\4 inch spacer, seemed to contribute to my death wobble so off they came. I recommend coughing out a little more for some aftermarket rims with less backspacing

Jason1348 05-16-2013 12:08 AM

Mine are spider tracks 1.25
