    I need x4, 1" or 1.5", not el-cheapo quality wheel spacers for my TJ.

    That is all.

    Thank you! :)

    I'd rather run 1.5" than 2" spacers if I had a choice.

    Bump.

    @Chris, do you allow bumps on this forum? I only ask because I don't know if it comes across as "spamming."

    Go for it! As long as you don't bump it every several hours, then I don't think it's spam!

    BTW, have you seen these?
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01C98EHQS/?tag=wranglerorg-20

    Lots of good reviews, and the price is right.

    To be honest, I'm not even sure how to differentiate cheap spacers from non-cheap ones. I say that because all of them are likely made in China in the first place, so at that point, they're probably all being made in the same factory anyways.

    I mean that's a very good point!

    However, it is strange when you compare the price points of Spydertrax to no-name brands like those - there's just gotta be a discrepancy somewhere.

    I want to get Spidertrax's, but I'm gonna sell them as soon as my 33's wear out and I can mount 10.5" wide tires on my rims. I mean is there a better alternative?

    It's hard to say man, it really is.

    Often times it's nothing more than a brand name that someone is slapping on it and charging you for. I see that with the LED headlights all the time. One guy is selling the same lights for $300 under his brand name, and another guy is selling them for $120 under his.

    Unless someone can verify that Spidertrax spacers are made in the USA, then my guess is they come from the same factory in China.

    That's also true. Just look at Air Jordan's or Nike products. Outrageously expensive.

    However, I just looked it up, and they are indeed made in the USA!

    I used Synergy spacers. Don't know where they are made, but they were great quality and I had zero issues with them.

    I also was looking at them too! What did you do once you were done with them? Just sold them to CL?

    Ahhh, well if they are made in the USA, then that might be worth the extra money.
