Wheel spacers?

Has anyone used wheel spacers from ezaccessory.com?

I am running an 87 zuk w/ a set of 34x1050x16 LTB's on 16x8 black daytona's medium offset, and my tires rub on the leaf springs. I was considering buying the 1.5" spacers.

Just curious if anyone has had issues with wheel spacers on their wheeling rig that is also driven as a grocery getter/to work a few times a week?

Just remember. Loc-tite is your friend with spacers!

I've been running them for years with no issues. But mine have all come from Spidertrax.

Although almost everyone calls their product a 'wheel spacer', many aren't. The real wheel spacers are basically a piece of metal (steel or aluminum) that 'shims out' the wheel to a wider stance. You need longer wheel studs to safely use a set of thick wheel spacers...


But wheel adaptors are what most companies sell and they are safer if you torque them correctly and use locktite.



I use Spidertrax wheel adaptors on both my trail vehicle and my daily driver. The only other options for what I wanted were wider axles or offset wheels.

My brother got some wheel spacers off of one of those Ebay stores, spacers alone looked alright but the studs and lug nuts that it came with were garbage! He just replaces them and all was good, nerver have had any come loose, but as other people are saying...locktite is the way to go.

Aw dam, too bad I missed this thread. I have four 1.5" wheel spacers that I took off my Zuk. Only two months old. I was going to sell them for $75...

Any reason why you're getting rid of them? What brand?
