Re: WK2 going to Moab's

Yeah, they definitely don't fit. Unfortunately had to find that out at the tire store.

They said spacers are strongly recommended against using. Are they really that big of an issue to use? I understand they can throw things off, but from what I've read here, as long as they are hub-centric and from a trustworthy manufacturer, they should be fine. Is that accurate?

Please excuse my lack of knowledge, but would changing to a wider tire bring the wheel closer to the brake assembly?

I switched from a 245 to 265 and was wondering if this could be resolved by moving back to a narrower width. After they mounted the stock wheels back on with the new tires at the store, they definitely look much closer to the brakes. There's about an inch or less between them right now.

Tires dont change the fitment of the wheels. That would be the wheel backspacing or offset. Let me see if i can find and old diagram pic that explained that real good

Looks like I'll be investing in some BORA spacers. I see a lot of people use 1.25" - 1.5", but I'm thinking 1" max, maybe even just some .750". Any recommendations or opinions on which size will be sufficient enough to make them clear?
