looking for decent wheel spacers, anyone have any suggestions?

well after my tire and wheel upgrade my front tires rub on the sway bar drag links when i turn in to them far enough, looks like the only fix is to buy some wheel spacers, any ideas on a good manufacture and do you guys think i will have problems with law enforcement being ***** about my tires sticking out another 1.25 inches?

I just bought these, I am very happy with them. NO more rubbing on the springs and control arms. plus the Jeep looks better now. I wanted to stick with the factory rims. not to mention the price is for 4 spacers not 2, and they are grade 8 hardware,
lug included.

Personally, I'd stick with a "big name" when buying wheel spacers. A lot of the cheaper ones use Chinese/foreign metal and wheel studs. I'd recommend Spidertrax or Fred Goaske (sp?) from wheeladapter.com.

You can also trim you fenders to eliminate the tires rubbing on them.

Check the spidertrax ebay store. They post up blemished sets for real cheap with free shipping ever so often.
