Re: I Want Spacers

Is the 1.25" spacer the smallest I can go with on a 2015 limited V8 with oem 18 wheels?

Are the spacers safe to use if you do a lot of dirt roads on your daily driving?

Re: I Want Spacers

Did anyone ever post a pic of 1.5" spacers? I know a few mentioned using them, but didn't see any pictures. Would love to see one, as I don't fancy the idea of having to grind anything to put 1.25" spacers on my OEM altitude wheels.

Re: I Want Spacers

I have a 2015 Summit with the 18" Mopar Off Road wheels with 275/65R18LT Duratracs on them. Currently there is no rubbing whatsoever.

I am looking at getting some 1.25" spacers all around, and I was wondering if someone on here has already done this with a similar setup and would love to see the results and find out whether this particular setup will rub or not?

I'm likely going to do 1.5" Boras on my 2015 limited with stock 20s. I'll post some pics.

Here's a post that goes over a few methods for doing the fronts:
How do you tighten front wheel spacers?

You're on a RRO leveling kit to though, right? I would hink that would eliminate any potential rubbing issues with your 1.5" spacers.

Mine went in for alignment but I had front shocks installed also. Last I looked when I was researching the spacers, they weren't needing alignment after install.
