Default Front wheel Spacers

I picked up some 1.25'' wheel spacers that came off an '06 Jeep Wrangler. The back fit fine once I trimmed the stock drum studs but when I got to the front the hub diameter is far bigger than the rear and wouldn't work. I know the OEM for the rear is 70.5mm but does anyone have any Idea what the front hub would be so I can buy some spacers to fit the front???

For those of us who can't afford to drop hundreds of dollars on new wheels, spacers are an affordable (albeit temporary) solution to obtain that wider stance that we are looking for.

I'll echo the other two. Spacers are a bad idea. Do it right the first time or don't do it.

If you can’t pay to play then don’t play. Wait until you can.

Wheel spacers stress out the wheel bearings.

Exactly this. Nothing wrong with waiting awhile for the funds in order to do something properly.

its a truck with 236K miles on it, no way I would put that much money into wheels and tires but for $50, spacers will do the trick. so back to my original question... whats the front hub diameter 82.5mm?
