Re: I Want Spacers

Wierd question. For those running approx a 32.1"x11" tire (I'm considering 275/65-18), does it look like tire chains will fit with your spacers?

What size tire, spacers you running and what is the minimal clearance?

Thanks,

-john

Re: I Want Spacers

Anyone running 2" spacers? I'm looking to throw on some 2 inchers with 20" 295 SRT wheels and tires and I'm wondering if it will be too wide?

Re: I Want Spacers

IMHO they would not look right ! I am running 1 1/4" and think they are a good fit. If some one has the 1 1/2" post a Pic so he/she can get an idea of how FAR the 2" would stick out.

What size SRT wheels? If they are the 20x9 replicas they will be at a lower offset and push the tires out past stock offset as it is. Include the 295 profile and 2" spacers and they will be sticking out really far. Way too far in my opinion, but that's just what I'm thinking.

Re: I Want Spacers

I'm looking at these 20x10 SRT replicas with 45mm offset, thats already 11mm less than the stock 18inchers (56mm), I'm looking to get some 1.25" spacers to bring the wheels out a little more, you guys think that would be ok? (I admit 2" was a stupid idea)

My wheels are +44.45 offset and I'm using 1.25" spacers and they stick out about as far as JMP's, maybe just a little further. That's with 265 profile tires though. Again, the 295s will stick out considerably more, by an inch or so. So if that's what you're aiming for look wise, go for it, but I still think that's too much poke.

Re: I Want Spacers

I'm selling my 1.5" bora spacers in perfect condition. I posted to the for sale area but just in case someone was interested:

Re: I Want Spacers

I have the 20" 5 spoke rims on my '14 Limited, would I have to cut the studs for the 1" spacer?

Most likely, unless your wheel has pockets for the extra stud length to extend into.

My spacers came in a while ago, just had a chance to put them on today. Glad I went with the 1.25", I don't think the pocket in the back of the wheel could hold another .25". Now if all my other stuff would just start coming in. For reference, these are stock 20" wheels with the stock 265/50R20 Forteras on there (for now)
