Re: I Want Spacers

Hi, I'm new here and could anyone tell if me the offset of the altitude wheels are the same as standard overland wheels, i would like the wheels to sit flush with the arches so I'm looking for spacers and I've ordered from Lenny before (nice bloke and very helpful) so what size do you need without the need to cut the studs, is it 1.25 or 1.50.

Re: I Want Spacers

I'll send him a message and see if he knows, it is a pain being in a completely different time zone.

Awesome. I thought he was saying you can't use spacers at all with the Altitude wheels. 1.25" or 1.5" minimum is not a negative, in my opinion... as I want them pushed out further anyway.

Stretch and poke, as referred to by the Audi people. Except I don't want any stretch.

Re: I Want Spacers

I've just ordered 1.25 spacers to use with my Altitude wheels, Lenny said that I might need to trim a bit off the end but the end bit isn't threaded anyway so it not a problem.

Just got to wait for about a month to find out how much customs is going to rob me.

That does look good- I like the stance!
How does your Jeep handle with the spacers?
