I have 2.5" aluminum wheel spacers from Performance Wheel & Tire and wouldn't drive again without them. Just do a google search, you'll find their website. I put two wheel spacers on the rear axle for $212 (includes shipping and lug nuts).

Why do you have the wheel spacers? My front tires rub on the springs would this help or would I be better of buying new wheels and tires? Lookd like price may be equal.

Yes, that's exactly why people get them. Sometimes the tires hit the frame, the shocks, or the springs.

You can get a set of 4 (2" spacers) cheaper than the above mentioned price at :

I used a 15x10 rockcrawler wheel with 2" backspacing instead of getting wheelspacers. I think they were $60 a piece.

Good web site fair prices I think. What about the quality? I wouldn't want them to break off? Do they break?How do you know what size to order?

If it's for your CJ, you're going to want 5 on 5.5 (bolt pattern). Putting 2"-3" wheel spacers on your CJ5 will add some ligitimate stability to your ride.

You don't have to order any bolt pattern or size, that's why there are multiple holes all over it, spaced out at different widths.

If by any chance you do have to give them a lug pattern, the guy above is correct, 5 on 5 1/2".

one more question. I'm guessing I should order 4 otherwise it would look dumb? Even though I'm getting them because th efront wheels are rubbing on springs. That is the only reason

Just be sure and measure your two axles before you order your spacers. My front axle (Dana30) is 2" wider than my rear axle (AMC20). So I ordered 1 1/4" spacers for the front and 2 1/4" spacers for the rear. This should make the axles look as if they are equal in width and give me the extra stability that I am looking for.

Yep, I have 2.5" spacers on the back and none on the front. They look about even.

Well this is getting a little more complicated. It looks like what your saying is that I do not need to order spacers for the rear. I have a 80 CJ 5 same axle setup as yours. I only want to get them so the front wheels won't rub. How do I tell what size to order? 1 1/2in, 2 or what????

Well do you want your axles to look like they are the same width? If you just space out the front, it is going to look WAY wider than the rear. It is really up to you and what you are shooting for.

Everyone on this thread has a differant opinion. Front only spacers, larger on rear than on front, same size all way around. What are the facts? I'm ready to order. I figure 1 1/2 for front and my wheels wouldn't rub. What size for the back? Is it reall this complicated?
