Wheel spacers????

Just ordered my 15 SRT. I had 1 1/4 wheel spacer Is this something the SRT can use or is it a diff set up then my 14 jeep overland was. I loved the wider stance it gave

Re: Wheel spacers????

I think that's a lot for the rear...they are already flush...but I was looking for spacers for the front and I found some amazing quality stuff here:

Re: Wheel spacers????

Hi

Just rehashing on older thread here, as I am thinking of getting some spacers for my 2015. I have been reading up and there are alot of differing opinions on spacers, so I would like some advice from you guys.

At this stage I am going to stick with my Black Chrome Spider Monkeys and about to order RM Mids for drop. On another forum there is a Black SRT running 1.25" spacers with the RM mids and IMHO it looks bad ass.
(Not to everyone's taste I know)

Will 1" or 1.25" Hubcentric spacers put too much pressure on the wheel bearings or affect the performance in any way?

Id be looking to get Eibach Pro Spacers or contacting Motor Sport Tech in Nevada to see if they ship to OZ.

Once again, just after constructive advice here

Well, just had a chat with Chad @ Blackops and got the info I needed to know it is not a good idea to run spacers!

Pity though as I love the wider stance but better safe than sorry eh

Can you elaborate? What were the reasons?
