4x4 Wheel Spacers

Postby dear1700 » Thu May 25, 2017 1:09 am

Never used wheel spacers before, but on my 4x4 I have 31x10.5r15 and the fronts rub a bit. I have the fender flares and the tires are tucked in enough to run wheel spacers. Here is what I was thinking of running http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Hubcentric-Wh ... 16&vxp=mtr

Running these spacers, would they cause any extra stress on A-arms or ball joints? It only rubs at full lock, but its annoying when trying to park sometimes. Also, looking to the future, isn't it possible to use similar wheel spacers with a Ford 8.8 to mount my S10 rims to?

Causes extra stress on wheel bearings/hubs. I never recommend spacers but put trucks/blazers are light enough to possibly make it work ok. I see a lot of diesel guys running them that end up on the side of the road with the nose of their trucks in the dirt. If you keep maintenance up on bearings/hubs and constantly check lugs then you couls get away with it
