Questions regarding spacers...

I've seen a lot of folks running both the 1.5 and 1.25 inch spacers on their rigs. I'm going with an OME MD lift and keeping the Ronin wheels planning on running a 255/75R17. I'd like to keep the wheels within the wells to reduce the chance of hitting the inside of the rear fender when flexing.

I'd like to run spidertrax spacers as I've heard they are top notch, but am wondering why they list the 99-04 WJ spacers for 1.25" and 05+ WK spacers at 1.5"? They have two different part numbers but the same bolt circle and hub bore. I'd think Spidertrax would sell 2 sizes of spacers, 1.25 & 1.5 for 99+ Grands.

Am I missing an obvious difference? Can't I run the 1.25 spacers on my 05?

They are still hub centric, correct? Is the centerbore on both 71.5mm for both?

Thanks Frank, they are super nice

They told me the WJ has shorter studs than the WK, so they may protrude past the 1.25" spacer. Other than that, they are identical in hub bore and bolt circle. They told me to measure the length of my studs and if they are under 1.25" long, I'm good to go with the thinner spacers.

Re: Questions regarding spacers...

I opted for the 1.5" spacers and have no rubbing with my stock size P245/65R17. Will be running either 245/75R17 or 255/75R17 tires after the OME lift.

Here's some pics from my other thread showing how little they stick out past the fender.
