anyone running wheel spacers wider than 1.5"

thinking of having some made that are 2.5" wide as im running stock wheels and want to get the 37x13.50's away from the lca's and swaybar mounts.

this would also give me the added benefit of having a wider front track for more stability.

I know that Poly Performance makes some that are 1.75", but 13.5" really is just too wide of a tire for the stock 7.5" wide wheel, IMO. Just pick up a set of cheap wider wheels to help you there.

^ +1 get some new wheels with right back spacing or close enough to use a 1.5 spacer. You will be happier you did in the long run.

X2 on the tire being too wide for a stock wheel. You would need to run them at like 14psi to be anywerer near flat

here in AZ we have a guy that runs these masive wheel spacers with the same plan. He has bent his front axle and he has the sleeves and gussets. I would recomend getting the correct wheels. Hope that was the info you were looking for

FYI, we have 1.25" and 1.5" versions on deck right now.
