I would like to spread my back wheels out 1/4".
Im a little to close to my inner wheelwell lip.
Does anybody have any pros or cons on using the aluminum wheel spacers or any other kind. I want to
make sure there safe to run. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

BOB

Do your wheels center on the lugs or the axle shaft pilots?

Make sure you have enough thread engagement on the wheel studs, if you put the spacers on.

Unilugs are supposed to center on the lugs, so you should be good to go. Be sure to observe Shepherd's caution about thread engagement.

I actually used 20 new washers , 2 on each lug looking to just move over a pinch,
maybe 1/8", it worked, I didn't like it but it worked
