1.5" Wheel Spacer brand preference

I am going to buy four 1.5" wheel spacers this week for my new Jeep Sahara that should be delivered in a few weeks. I want to go with a set of BFGoodrich All-Terrain TA K/O's LT275/65R18, which according to Tire Rack has the same diameter at 32.1" as the stock Sahara tires, but is 11" wide vs. 10.2". I like the stock Sahara wheels so I have no intentions on buying new wheels anytime soon.

I noticed Spidertrax are about double the cost of other brands like Hubcentric and Alloy USA. Is it wise to pay the extra for Spidertrax or am I paying for the brand name? Any brand recommendations?

Based on reading other threads concerning increasing the tire size, it sounds like it is recommended to go with a 1.5" wheel spacer rather than running this tire size on stock rims without a wheel spacer. Is this the best course of action to take or would I be fine without the wheel spacers?

Thanks for the advice in advance!

Re: 1.5" Wheel Spacer brand preference

Hmmm I just did a quick search and Spidertrax are $20 cheaper than Alloy USA. I would go with them since everyone has used them and says they are great.

I haven't really heard of hubcentric if you can link me to them that would be great.

Speaking of "hubcentric" make sure the spacers you get are hubcentric type and not just normal spacers that slot in between the wheel and the hub.

This is GOOD



This is BAD
