can anyone recomend a good brand and size, I'm not looking to break the bank. I have stock 17" wheels and no lift.
I just ordered 1.25" spacers from Wheel Gear ($99 for four). It's my 3rd set in the past 10 years. I had zero issues with the previous two sets. Most people spend $200 on spidertrax spacers but I've had both side to side and both are quality except one isn't powdercoated.
Those are for TJ's but they should have what you need. They ship out same day too.
Don't do 2" though. I used 2" spacers on my dodge dakota (brand new truck back in 2000) and went through two sets of unit bearings in a year. I only use 1" or 1.25" (1.25 for most wheels but if my wheels have recessed holes on the backside then I can use 1" spacers).
Be sure to use blue locktite on the hub studs and torque spacer nuts to factory specs. <=== VERY IMPORTANT!
