Default Re: Wheel spacers?

how big are the tires? and i dont think many of us here like those tires, if you have the money go with some other tires. but on the topic of spacers, 1.25 is the bare minimum you can go i think without having to swap out the stock lugs, so 1.5 should be fine. really think about it, if your going to lift it i would wait and not waste money on spacers especially if your getting spindles.

I put spacers on the rear only of my ride as the front track is wider than the rear in stock form. Looks even now.

This. Mine is a 2011 Sport 4x4 too and looks like what you're describing. Can I ask, did it affect handling at all? How many miles have you put on it with the spacers? And what size spacers? Thanks!

I had 2in spacers on mine up unitl about a month ago. I think they bent something and caused my rear wheels to wobble
