1.25" ZJ wheel spacers

Ok, I know IRO has the Spidertrax spacers that would cost me about $250 all told.

Now the 4x4 place in Calgary has rugged Ridge ones for $300 out the door and MCM for $280 out the door. Even thought the RR ones are more expensive its better just to wait a week and get Spidertrax or are the RR one better qualtity?

With your knowledge on the subject, STICK WITH SPIDERTRAX.

My spacers came out to $217.98 TOTAL from IRO.

Why do you want to pay more than $218 anyway??

from what ive heard some people have great luck with cheap spacers and some have horrible luck. i wouldnt risk it and buy spidertrax. i believe arlo is running the cheapos and they work fine though.

I run SpiderTrax on my ZJ and my wife's ZJ. Just call SpiderTrax directly and order for them. We paid a hair over $200 for ours shipped.

If spacers cost that much, why not get new wheels?

Because the only wheels that you can get new for that price are Cragars. Not only are they ugly but everyone and their mother have them.

I sold my cragars and bought JK rims and spacers.

I don't see why not. I'm going all four corners just because it will look uniform, give the Jeep a bit wider looking stance and I have the room so they only poke out <1/4" from the stock fenders.

That will give you some "interesting" handling characteristics.

I think you should paint the fenders first

Not to Hijack your forum sir, but can someone explain the in's and outs of wheel spacers. I am using my origional canyon 15x8's, and with bigger tires(31x10.5x15), I was wondering if I would/should get spacers. Thanks a ton by the way!
