Re: 1.25" Bora Spacers On

Lug nuts won't change with the spacers. Just make sure you get the 14mm x 1.5 acorn 'bulge' part number 91147BC for the standard black lugs and 96641BDX for the locks.

Here's a pic on a flatter surface after getting the chrome window surround wrapped. These do sit pretty high, I suppose.
Did you put the spacers on yourself or did you have a shop do it? Is it required that they be torqued to a specific weight?

Anyone can do a spacer install all you need is just the normal tools you would use to do any wheel change. You will however need a deep socket for the spacer lugs since the openings are pretty tight.
The directions that came with my Bora spacers said use the same torque that the vehicle recommends for the normal lug nuts. I actually don't have a torque wrench, but you can do a pretty good job of getting them fairly close to spec. Lug nuts should never be over tightened like a lot of stupid shops do.

I put them on myself. I have a torque wrench. I torqued the spacers, and the wheels, to 100 ft lbs

1.25" Bora Spacers On

Looks good. With the 1.25" did you have to cut any of the factory studs, because the stuck out to far? I had an H3 and I'm new to the Jeeps.

No, you do not cut any of the original lugs.

The wheel studs on the WK2 stick out 1 7/16. As long as your wheel has some recessed area behind where the factory lugs would go you should be fine.

Re: 1.25" Bora Spacers On

Is anyone using blue LocTite on the nuts that hold the spacers on since they won't need to be removed as often as the wheel lug nuts? What's the torque spec? 100 ft/lbs?
