Post Spacer or something else?

So I'm deciding to put back on my rims for this spring through fall. It's not going to snow anymore so now's that time. Here's the thing, one of my rims back spacing is shorter than the rest and I believe it sits in more towards the back than the others. This is for my back passenger side. I don't know if I need to get a spacer or an adapter or what. If anyone knows anything, any help would be nice. I'll try and draw a picture of this problem and hope someone can get the picture . Thanks.

-Jordan

A spacer would work, we got some at Autozone that are about a 1/4 inch thick but they don't come with lugs they just slide over the lugs and then wheel goes on then tighten the lugs and bam

That's what I probably need then. If you can give me the link of them, I can go to my autozone and pick some up (with your members discount) lmao

sure it's not the "bed" none of them line up correctly.... measure the wheels first, if they all are the same.. then loosen the bed and center it the best you can..

No, it's definitely the wheel because when I had them off, I compared that one wheel to the other 3 and the three wheels were are the same with the back spacing and that one wheel back was shorter than the others.

Did you buy the BIGG rims? When? Where?
You have a mismatched set?
I would try to find the proper rim.

Yeah bigg rims I don't want to spend 300 bucks for another rim so trying to find another alternative. Might have to experiment with spacers And go from there. Might try it out tomorrow.

If you were sold a mismatched set, take 'em back.

It wasn't a mismatched set. I bought one rim new because of the other rim I had was stained (due to my dad). And it fit fine on the truck but when taking it off, we noticed that the backspacing of that rim was off with the rest. So I need a spacer adapter and problem solved.

Default Re: Spacer or something else?

Found some sites from Jegs and was wondering if you all could take a look at it and see which one I need. Went to my local autozone and found out that they only have 1/4 thickness spacers. I would need 3 of those to equal 3/4. That's all I need but they told me not to do that. So maybe just getting a 3/4 spacer will do? Here are the sites. I would really appreciate it. Thank you all in advance!
