I picked up my set off ebay, but the studs seem a bit crappy. Or maybe it's the cheap lug nuts, but I've had a couple gaul up and break. Otherwise they fit great and are hub centric to the ZJ and the wheels, so the fit is really good. A 1.25" thick adapter put a 265/70R17 nice and flush with stock fenders. They do rub the lower control arms at full lock, though.

I've been using the Spidertrax hub-centric adapters for a lot of years and they've worked just fine.

I've never had problems with Spider Trax. I've used them since early 2000s on three ZJs.

The JK 17x7.5 rims have 6.25" BS, so a 2" adapter/spacer would make an equivalent 4.25" BS..pretty close to the preferred 3.75" - 4" BS of aftermarket 15" wheels. (NOTE: ZJ 15x7 stock rims have 5.25" BS)

I have Titan 2" spacer/adapters:

You need longer wheel studs:

went with rough countrys adapters since i had used their spacers before in the past. They are 1.5" thick so will see how it comes out. May go wider if need be

I've never replaced studs but isn't the knurling/shoulder on those bolts to short for the front? I thought the fronts had a longer shoulder

Those dorman wheel studs work for both ends, shoulders are the same length, but the rear has longer knurling.
