Tire Spacer

hello everyone, I am a new Jeep owner. I have a 2008 wrangler unlimited sahara with a 3" in lift and 35 in tires. Would purchasing a tire spacer help with anything or is it just merely for cosmetics? Thanks!

Wheel spacers move the wheel/tire combo out from the vehicle and solve (for many) rubbing problems from running taller/wider tires. It's considered a functional change but there are those Jeepers who do it for that wide-stance look. Buying wheels with less backspacing than stock gives the same results.

If you're not rubbing at full articulation and when up against the steering stops - I think you're good.
