1.25 inch spacers

Just installed 1.25" spacers on my TJ, but the lugs to the spacers only went down half the lug due to spacers sitting on the factory lug bolts. I used blue lock tite on the lugs. Has anyone else seen this, do I have to get extra long lug bolts and press them in? Help, advise please, don't want my wheels coming off or snapping a bolt due to torque at the end of the bolt.

Can you post pictures? Also, what brand? I just put some 1.25 on my jeep no problems. Finally, you should use loctite red for the nuts holding the spacers into the jeep/ rotors.

You used the wrong type of spacers, and should not use loctight on your lug nuts. If you must use wheel spacers, this is a better type. http://www.jeep4x4center.com/wheel-a...eel-spacer.htm

Spydertrax includes thread locker with their spacers. Its been debated to death but they have the best install procedure. To the OP your description is hard to follow.

To hold the spacer on, but not on the lugs that hold the tire on.

Yeah I'm not totally understanding what the OP has and what the problem is.

I have spidertrax spacers and I used the included loctite. I followed their directions to a tee because their primary concern (well, after making a profit) is safety - and that's why they have the best reputation for spacers. Whereas some other companies would rather make an affordable product than a reliable one.

And yes, I'm having a hard time. Please post pics so we can help you!

Yes, that's what I meant. Sorry. I'm on my cell phone - it's difficult to type.

Looks like you bought these http://www.ebay.com/itm/231018460369 which are 5x4.5 to a 5x5 bolt pattern. If you are trying to put your stock/old wheels back on this WONT work. You need a 5x4.5 to 5x4.5 bolt pattern. The ones you bought are essentially adapters. To a different bolt pattern.

Also, thanks for posting pics. I'm at work now, but I can take a look at them this evening

Something's wrong - why are only two studs coming part way through the spacers? Your explanation of the problem is vague. This is what the spacers should look like. These are Spidertrax 1.25" spacers with a 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern.

Looks like there might be two untreated studs and three carbon steel studs giving the appearance that there's only two.

Manufacturer could have machined the recesses deeper.
