Wow! Looking through this forum and others I am seeing so many varying opinions on the use of wheel spacers. I am looking at adding rear wheel spacers for the following reasons:
- Increase rear track width in order to match front for safety reasons
- Increase rear track width in order to match front for aesthetic reasons
- Increase rear track width because new 285/65/16 tires rubbed a hole in my Firestone airbags
I know that there are several posts on this, and I have heard that Ujoint is the guy to get them from but I would like input as to whether you guys think they are a safe alteration, what size would be appropriate (can I simply measure the difference between the front and rear and divide that by two to get my spacer size?), and why Ujoints are superior to the ones that cost 1/4 the price on ebay? To be clear, I am not opposed to spending the $ for the Ujoint spacers, but I would like to know what makes them better than the others? I ask this question with all of the due respect to Ujoint as there seems to be very good reason for the respect he has received. I have not personally seen any of his/their work, but have spent hours of my life drooling over his website!
