MK Wheel Spacers?

I'll be getting new Cooper AT3s P235/65R17 on my Jeep and I'd like to improve the stance a bit so spacers came to mind, I think I may be going with 1.5" or 2" spacers, however I dont know the side effects to them.

can anyone recomend a good brand and size, I'm not looking to break the bank. I have stock 17" wheels and no lift.

those look decent, 1.5" 5x4.5" wheel spacers, only problem is its a pack of 2.

I'm looking for 4, so I dont have to order 2 items.

Just about every supplier worth buying sells them individually or in pairs: Teraflex, Rugged Ridge, Alloy USA, Spidertrax. You'll be looking at around $200 for a whole set.

I personally have used Spidertrax and been quite happy on both a TJ and JK.

I run 1.25" wheel spacers with 235/65/17 with the RRO lift kit I personally wouldn't go any wider than that as your tires will start to stick out and look a bit awkward (my personal opinion).

Also depending on your local laws the police may not like having tires that stick out that far. Where i'm from unless fender flares or mud flaps cover your tires properly they write you up

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!

They don't go by listings. It's actually an ebay store that you can buy spacers anytime, any day.

I just received mine today.
