I have the 20" overlands original wheels, that I realliy like (wont change them), but I dont like the stand, I would like something wider like the SRT look, do you guys know if I can fit a 1.5" wheel spacers whitout rub????

Or which are your sugestions for a wider stance with the stoks wheels????

Check out this page from another forum which has details of eibach spacers that work. Looks like you need two sets of new lug nuts to complete the setup.

avoid spacers if you can... i've got some on my ride only because of my lift... i def wouldnt recommend them only for looks... but thats just my opinion

My cousin had wheel spacer failure causing the wheel to break off. He hit a bus, rolled in a ditch, and burn alive in the Jeep.

He was a mechanic and was always on top of maintenance.

Don't do it.

Re: wheel spacers
 
I had like 4 or 5 sets of wheel spacers moslty on mustangs, and never had any probblem, all of them where used from time to time at the track, thats why im asking...... and why so confident.

I allready found some spacers from H&R (PN: 50155716) are for a wrangler, but have the same bolt patern and hub size, 1" thick, and in the front 12mm spacers (custom made), just the washer (whitout bolts) and still have 3/4" whit thread.

Let you know when finished
