wheel spacers?

I am wondering if anyone knows if you could safely use a 6mm or 10mm wheel spacer without replacing the studs?

Bad idea.

Don't use the slip on style spacers, they cut down on how much thread the lug nuts bite onto.

If you want spacers, get some that have their own independent studs and bolt to your existing, use locktite, and periodically recheck the torque.

There should always be at least as much thread engaged as the diameter of the thread....in other words, if you have half inch diameter thread lugs then you need at least half an inch of thread in the nut....standard engineering practice. Don't think you could do that with any sort of slip on spacer on our Jeeps.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
