2" wheel spacers? okay for rock crawling?
ok, so i have 37's but the front passenger side tire rubs alot when flexed and turned. it rubs the leaf spring (yes it has leaf spring conversion) when the wheel is turned to the right, and it rubs the top of the wheel well when flexed out. I am debating between going with 35's or buying 2" wheel spacers, or both 35's and 2 inch wheel spacers, to see if that will will push the tire out far enough from the leaf spring.
now i know that everybody hates wheel spacers or adapters when it comes to new cars, and highway driving and its hard on ur bearings and hubs and lughs blah blah blah..
so my question is.. are there any downsides to using wheel spacers on a rig that is purely a rock crawler? could there truely be any difference between wheel spacers and a offset rim? the only driving this does is slow crawling, or 40mpg getting from the trailer to the trail head.. the only time it sees highway driving is when it's towed to moab.
anybody have any input? i'd appreciate it.
