Wheel Spacers on my 2014 Limited 20" Rims
 
I just ordered 50mm wheel spacers for my 2014 JGC Limited with 20" wheels. Does anybody have any feedback? Will I experience any difficulties or problems? Or should I only expect good things and a mean stance on my ride?

I use 1.25" spacers with no issues, and think they give the Jeep a much better stance. 50mm/ or 2" will push the wheels out more than I would want, but will probably work without issue. Obviously want to make sure you use a quality product, that is well reviewed. Did you check out this thread?

Here is what I found on the net.. 85% think Spacers are safe 15% think it's unsafe..

Quotes from the web..

Spacers are safe if you use the hub centric ones with the little lip around the center hole. The weight of the wheel is on the lip/hub and not on the threads. In my opinion most spacers sold are not the best. Spidertrax, teraflex, Eibach/H&R are usually good

Spidertrax and teraflex are "hubcentric" unlike the inferior rough country spacers which are "lug centric".

Use locktite and Follow steps:

1. Clean mounting surfaces and studs. Make sure the assembly clips are removed from the studs.
2. Install spacers.
3. Torque nuts on spacers.
4. Install wheels and torqe nuts.
5. Drive around 10 miles.
6. Remove wheels.
7. Retorque spacer nuts.
8. Install wheels and torqe nuts.
9. Repeat steps 5-8 until you get no rotation on spacer nuts when you torque them.
Check the torque on the spacers any time a wheel is removed. This will be at least every 3000 miles when I rotate the tires.

Make sure you cut that little ring off of each of the five threaded OEM posts. It may or may not have these little clips, just watch for them because they'll prevent the spacer from mounting perfectly flush.

Hope this helps..

Not sure if Spacers will void the warranty, will check with the dealer next week

Any info on what you found out?

I'm in need of spacers to fit my other wheels, but obviously don't want to void the warranty.

The Jeep dealer I deal with said Spacers won't void the warranty, will look into getting a set in the spring.. Saw a 2014 overland with spacers, looked awesome, not sure what size he used...

I just spoke with a technician over the phone at my dealer and he was pretty wish-washy about it. Says that some people do use spacers who get work done there some don't...but if they do a warranty service claim on it and it has mods, they will note that it is modified and could've been caused by the spacers.

So basically, take them off before I take it in for any problems I notice.

It's not enough to scare me away from getting them. If I want these moab wheels to fit, I have no other choice and at this point it's purely functional, but at least it adds to the look as well.
