1.5" Wheel Spacers

Hey guys,
I was thinking of getting some Rough Country 1.5" wheel spacers for my jeep tj.
Any cons to these spacers? Or spacers in general?

Thanks

From what I've seen around here, if it's a name you're familiar with then they'll be alright. Make sure they're hub centric for peace at mind as far as safety and use loctite on the spacer's studs.

People freak about spacers for no 100% proven reason. Don't buy eBay brands and use loctite while checking lugs every now and again and you won't run into any problems. If you do then you probably screwed something up that's already incredibly simple.

They're as good as any.I had them on my TJ with 35's and my XJ and no problems.I even took a direct hit to my rear wheel at 50 mph and the spacer held up great.I use a dab of silicone seal on the threads and they never come loose by accident.

Another positive customer of wheel spacers here. Never had problems with the bearings.


I believe Redlyner put his wheel spacers through the ultimate stress tests on his D44's while racing on 37's throughout ECORS. I would message him if you want to get a great opinion on the matter.

We have ordered several sets for customers from www.wheeladapter.com and I run his 2 inch steel spacers on my F450, never had an issue. He can make any size you want.

Those are good spacers. I have recommended the Rough Country 1.5" Wheel Spacers to people who need/want to run them and they've been happy.

Rough Country uses a high grade aluminum and they're hub centric which is what you want. Some say don't use locktite because you don't get an accurate torque spec. Others say it's not necessary if you torque the lugs every oil change. How ever you decide to install them, make sure they stay tight! Let me know if you'd like a quote or if you have any other questions.

I've had some weird luck with other Rough Country products, but the spacers have good specs and reviews. I've personally used the spidertrax spacers, which are pretty much the same.

Just make sure you check both sets of lugs periodically. I tend to rotate my tires with my oil change, so I have perfect chance to check them at the same time.
