I knew a guy back in school that put 10" wheels with low rider tires and put like 4" spacers too put the wheels outside the wheelwells on his cavaleir.. I also watched how he wore out and broke his ball joints. It was funny as hell, he was one of those wanna be lowrider streetracer faggits.

Wheel Spacers

Christine,go to precisionwheel.com and check out their wheel spacers,they have a good product. I am running a set of their two and one half inch wheel spacers on the back of My 71 F-100 4x4 with no problems on or off road.

wheelspacers are generally not a very good idea. Everything wears out faster, and is stressed more for the same impact. Nod: 2 1/2" of spacer is NUTS. That is WAY to big for me. By the way, why did you need such big spacers.

I don't think I need 2 1/2" spacers, this was just a thought. Yesterday I went to my local tire store to have my front end checked. I went up to 37" tires from my 35's but I didn't go wider because the rim would take a wider tire. I'm running 37 x 12.5 x 17. I have a lot of body roll. The tire guy said since I went up 2", I should have gone out 1". I can't afford new tires and rims. I just though spacers might be an option.

Wheel spacers

Christine,sorry for wrong address,here is the correct address, performancewheel.com/index.cfm.

Borin&strokin,I used the spacers on my 71 F-100 4x4,the stock rear wheel span is four and one half inches narrower than the front Dana 44.I did not like the rear wheelspan to be narrower than the front ,so rather spend a lot of money to buy a newer wider nine inch rear then remounting the spring perches and usually several other conversion problems and more time and money i decided to try the wheel spacers.After looking at many spacers and finding how they were built I decided to go with performance wheel for the sheer strength of their product and product strength claims.
