do i need wheel spacers?


Recommended Posts


just fitted my new wheels and tyres and im very happy with them :D ,

they are 35/12.50/16 creepy crawlers on 8x16 mods, my dilema is when on full lock they rub the radius arms like i thought they would, so do i just adjust the lock stops and put up with it or do i fit spacers?

i dont mind putting spacers on but i dont really want the tyres sticking out any further than they do and will fiting spacers cause problems catching on the arches ?

look forward to your comments

if you get wheel spacers then your going to have to fit extended arches, i would adjust the stop locks and see how you get on from there and pick your parking spaces wisely!!

Looks like they will catch the arches with spacers, as well as needing bigger arches.

I put 265/70's on my Disco, and had to adjust the lock stops a lot. You soon get used to the oil tanker turning, after being really peeved with it for a week.
