Hey all,

Has anyone run quality hub-centric spacers (ie: BORA, Spidertraxx) on the stock PW wheels to fit 37s?

I know for aftermarket wheels +18 to +25 offset is ideal to fit 37s. If I went that route I'd likely going with AEVs, Methods, or Racline wheels with those specs.

However, I currently have the 2016 Stock PW wheels, which are forged and very well made -- I'd love to keep them and thought that a high-quality spacer might be a way to do it and reduce rubbing.

Have any of you done it? What size spacer would you recommend to end up with stock wheels positioned similarly to an aftermarket +18 offset wheel?

edit: @IRSmart if I recall you have some experience / insight in this area?

You can. But tq em correctly and remember they’re now maintenance items and you’ll be fine. My buddy runs bora and has had no issues. Jumps and beats on his truck. Gotta remove any clips on the studs also.

Get good spacers, Don't cheap out , And install them correctly with lost of loctite ;)

I got spidertrax on the Wifes Jeep and never had an issue.

Wheel spacers just dont fall off...lol. I retorque mine every time I do a tire rotation.

Gotta wonder as to why wheel spacers aren't used on commercial jet landing gear wheels.

if you used Loctite then retorquing them is not really doing anything as your not getting a proper torque value..

I wouldnt use spacers, id pony up for wheels instead.

Two things i wouldnt use are wheel spacers and the pucks for lifting the front end. Absolutely nothing wrong with doing it right instead of saving a few bucks.
