Re: I Want Spacers

Great thread, I just read through the entire thing and have some questions. I was anxious to see what the 2" spacer look like but never saw the pictures posted. Could you please post?

I have a '14 GC with QL and 20" rims. I'd like to keep the rims and go to a bigger tire with spacers. I'm planning to go with 275/55R20s and 1.25" spacers. Could I go with 275/60R20s?

Thanks in advance for any advice

Re: I Want Spacers

I have a set of 4 1-1/4" spacers and 2 1" spacers I am looking to sell if any are interested.

Do you have QL? I'm looking to run the biggest tires without any issues. Is 275/55R20 the biggest you'd go or is there more room?

Good luck getting a direct answer.
I'd like to run the widest I could with either zero offset rims or spacers that make the rubber bust out from the wheel wells a bit. I have Quadra Lift too.
Tough to find some one with all the same combination to advise it seems.

I have a std height blackhawk (altitude) with 275/55/20 no issues, I have since put in a 2 inch lift so still no issues. it was pretty tight I would suggest that is the largest.

Ya, it does seem touch to find someone to give advice on QL (as the entry/exit mode is the boundary condition). What are you currently running for rims + tires?

It seems that we're both looking for the same thing.

Thanks for the advice. The entry/exit mode drops 1.6 inches from your stock height, do you think there would have been enough room before you did the lift with those tires?

Stock currently.
I'll buy some winters and then hopefully have it figured out by spring.
Keep in touch and share answers please.

Hey did you have to cut anything for the 1.25 spacers to fit? I have the same wheel basically..(2014 altitude)

I think their would have been, if your tyre dealer id half decent he will let u fit them and if isses changed them. I reckon u will be good, as entry/exit the car is stationary.
