spacers on front only
hey guys so i just wanted to check and make sure im not going to mess anything up with doing spacers on the front only? i had to use spacers in the front to prevent rubbing but i really dont like the tires going outside of the fenders, the front looks pretty good but i know the same spacer on the rear will push it out past my liking, and its cheaper on the wallet. Is this ok to do? Will i be wearing anyhting out quicker by doing this? Thanks for the help!

1/4" or 1/8" spacers and youll be fine. I had 1/4" spacers on my WK so i could use JK wheels last year but i sold the wheels. I would not use anything thicker then 1/4" though.

Re: spacers on front only
Thanks a lot. If you dont mind me asking why not past 1/4"? What could happen past that amount? I only ask cause the tire shop i went to put on 1in spacers up front and nothing in the rear, do i need to get spacers on the rear ASAP?

Re: spacers on front only
If the shop did it and told you it would be fine then you "should" be able to blame them if anything were to happen. Will it hurt anything its doubtful. Would I do it to my jeep. Probably not. I would want to make it match or chage wheels. But I'm also OCD about things like that. I'd notice the width difference every time I look at it.

Rear my sticky thread on wheel spacers at the top of the off road modifications section.
