Wheel Spacers For a 2014/15 Summit

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?

I would love to see the results and find out whether this particular setup will rub or not?

More in general, since the fender flares on the Summit and SRT are different than the rest of the Grand Cherokees, are they better or worse for tire clearance?

I think you meant to say the same, not different. Summit and SRT use th exact same fender flares.

Looks like spacers on summits are not that popular :P

LOL, I have read here that some have used Bora spacers on the different GC platforms and like the quality

Re: Wheel Spacers For a 2014/15 Summit

Well.. I hadn't ever considered spacers until seeing so many users on this forum mention them. In previous vehicles I have owned I just purchased aftermarket wheels, but never spacers. I think my old age of, has me less interested in custom wheels. Plus I really think the stock 20s my Summit look fine. However, I do think that spacers would improve the stance of the vehicle, and make even more content with keeping my stock wheels. So with the Summit riding on the stock 20s, what spacers should I get? And what are the Pros and Cons of having spacers?
Thanks for any input!!

I put on a set of 1.25" Bora Spacers a couple weeks ago, using my stock 20" wheels, and can report all is well. No issues.
