What about wheel spacers? Are they dangerous and should be avoided??

There is allot of guys that will bash wheel spacers but the are used all the time by a ton of daily drivers and wheelers.
If you do run them you want to check them often and make sure to use red lock tight so the lugs are not getting loose on you.

They say it puts more stress on the wheel bearings but no more than a offset wheel.


If you want a different look i would search for some fake beadlocks "or real" ...

plain, stock steel

This is not a restoration! My goal is stop the rust, mechanically sound and easy on the pocketbook.

I like the US Indy's also. I'm running these made by REI on the Jeep and off-road trailer. Don't see them very often especially in a 10x15 so I hope I never break one.

I had a set on my old jeep (the nicer blue one) I liked a lot, don't know the brand name or anything...

New jeep (black POS) has centerlines that came with the widetracks i just got... I didn't like them at first and was going to replace them when I get new tires, but they are growing on me.

Those are beadlocks right? They are very nice but also very expensive! I would worry about messing those up while wheeling
