Looking for wheel spacers

Looking for 8x6.5 to 8x6.5 wheel spacers if anyone has a set.

I just installed fender flares and now the van looks like it has donut spares for rear wheels...

Re: Looking for wheel spacers

Henderson's Line-up also make them in Medford (they used to be called Correct Track).

FYI - Don't tell the tire shop you have "spacers". Be sure to call them "adapters" instead. Nearly all shops are no longer allowed to mount wheels on spacers, most likely due to insurance restrictions.

Spacers = ring with holes punched in to fit over studs.
Adapters are machined, bolt to your studs, and have their own studs.

Well, the advanced 4WD conversion on my rig has 3/8" or so spacers on the front to clear the calipers.....

I always just bring the wheels to the tire shop off of the vehicle; too many bad things have happened with the whole vehicle at the shop. Costco broke the little remote IR window on the driver's door handle of my GF's Benz when she was getting new tires...they refused to do anything to fix it.
