Wheel spacers

I posted this in the wheel tire section with no response and googled it with nothing about this, so..
I put spacers on today and noticed on the rear the wheel studs don't leave much room, threads, for the spacer lugs, I didn't like it so I left the rear spacers off. The fronts have more threads though, yes, the front wheels stick out a little bit wider now, but they don't rub!!
Has anyone had the same problem? or are longer studs a good idea?

You just used slip on spacers?

You should be using the type that bolt to the hub and have studs built in for the wheel to bolt to, the slip on ones are unsafe for the exact reason you found out.

Yeah they are the bolt on, but, not much of the Jeep's factory studs come through for them to bolt to. They will bolt on but I don't like how it looks with only half of
the nut on there.

Are you sure they're seated all the way on with no interferance? They should sit enough for you to get at least the full nut on.

Also, which brand are you using and what is the actual spacer size?
