I'm in the middle of lifting my Jeep and replacing parts. I put some spidertrax on the rear wheels and definitely like they way they look. I'll install the fronts after the rod ends get replaced. With any luck they'll make the ride more stable as well.

if you like the wheels you have on your zj then wheel spacers are fine if you want to change wheels just get wheels with 4" of backspacing

Why do you want wheel spacers? Do you want the tires to stick out more without having to buy new wheels?

Ive been running E-bay 1" wheel spacers for a while and they work great. Got all 4 for $120. Allow me to run a wider tire without buying new wheels with different back spacing.
