.75" bolt on spacers

Has anyone tried these with Moab wheels? I am currently running a 255/75R17 without any spacers on Moab wheels. And I really like the way it tucks in and I don't spray the sides of my Jeep with the MTs. But, I need to do my brakes soon, and I probably won't clear the rims anymore after that. I was looking at Bora's site at some one inchers, and noticed that they sell .75 So, has anyone tried these yet? And yes, I know the stock studs may need to be ground down, even with the pockets on Moab rims.

personally ive tried 1" spacers and 1/4" spacers with moabs- they looked great with 1" spacers, the stance looked awesome. the 1/4" however were alittle better in terms of rubbing the pinch weld. plus you still have plenty of bite on the stock studs with 1/4" spacers. i would be interested in seeing what the opion on 3/4" spacers are

The only WK I know of that had 3/4" spacers was AEV's Mojave.

If it's good enough for the AEV guys, then I think it'll work for me. How far does the stuf stick out on a 1"?

Well I am probably not the best for comparison, but here is a shot with 17" moabs, 1" spacers, and 295/70R17 (33.5) Nitto Trail Grapplers:




And with the same wheels and spacers but 35x12.50R17 BFG KRs (they are a little fatter):




And the Mojave which had the stock 17" wheels, 3/4" spacers, and 305-75-R17 (34") Goodyear MTRs:

I just realized that I typed in the wrong word, I was hoping to see how far the stock studs stick out of the 1" spacers. That will give me a good idea on how far into the moab rims they will go with the .75 ones.

Oooooh! I will have to look and see if I have a good pic of an installed spacer, but the lugs stick out maybe 1/8"

So I need to check the pockets on the moab rims to see if they have a little more than 3/8 of an inch.

The pockets are pretty deep! Here is a pic, the nuts on the stock lugs are just less than flush, so the little bit that sticks out past the nut is the excess. (the nuts in this pic are slightly loose)

Your recent post about your spacer trouble is one of the things that made me look back into them again.
