Technically, there is no difference. If you are running 4.5" backspacing wheels with a 1" spacer you are effectively running a 3.5" backspacing wheel. You have physically moved the wheel from the wheel mounting surface(WMS) the same distance however you choose to do it. Anytime you move the wheel out you change lots of physics for the negative.amerijeep said:Seems like a better way to go would be wheels with back spacing to set the tires out farther.
Yup.bigjeep said:i think they slide over the existing studs. and then the you put the wheel on the stud coming through the spacer and tighten the lugs like normal. i think thats how it goes.
Well, you haven't said what size tires you want to run. (or I missed it if you did)Triple88a said:yep Dirk is 100% on track here..
I want to get 2" spacers but i'm wondering will i have a rub or soemthing if my stock rim is 3.5 BS and stock hight? I dont think my jeep is lifted.. i know i didnt lift it but i dont know if the prev owner did..
