Review: 1.5" Wheel Spacers

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=1245902031016

Got the Wheel Spacers listed above. They work exactly as they should, no vibrations, no installation issues. I bought them from lugnutguys on Ebay. They were $105 shipped for all four wheels. I would recommended these again for price and functionality. I didn't have to buy anything else, and all four wheels fit perfection. Shipping was SUPER quick (ordered Friday, got on Tuesday). I added the seller, lugnutguys, for when the link for them dies, they may be able to get the wheel spacers for you as well. I have 2" BL, Pro 4-X rims, and stock tires.

I will say, not that it has anything to do with the spacers, I did get rub on the inner fender, which I think is because of the body lift. I just removed the splash guard and dented the inside of the fender back a little bit.

Looks like a quality product. Keep us informed on the quality. Also what is your setup with lift, tires and wheels? Have photos?

Updated original post with setup info. I will get pictures tomorrow when I take the Xterra in for some maintenance (and hopefully getting the rear leaf pack replaced).

Don't you experience more bump steer with spacers? I ran into that with other vehicles and decided it's not the way to go for off-road...

I was reading about this online. What I read appeared to be more apparent with SAS'ed vehicles. It had to do with the centerline of the wheel being moved out past the steering knuckle. I don't THINK this will cause too much problems with our vehicles; I don't really have a good valid reason why, but I can't see how this would cause a problem on a non-SAS'ed vehicle.

Maybe other's can provide more insight on this.

Here is the only site I could find talking about lifting and bump steer.

I too am running a set of these ebay spacers but mine are hub centric 1" spacers . No issues with bumpsteer on mine . I paid $140 for the set shipped and was supper fast . I cant see spending over $200 on some of the other online sites when these work just as good .

Just remeber to re torque the the inner nuts after 20+ miles of driving .
