Wheel Spacers

So I was thinking about buying 1/2" wheel spacers because the rims i have are 15x7 and don't have alot of offset for the 32x11.50x15r tires. Looking for more offset but not trying to spend alot of money like buying the right offset rims. Is wheel spacers the easiest and safest way to go? thanks.

alright. I was told that it would wear bearings quicker but sounds like it is safe to do. Do you know a place where I can get 1 inch wheel spacers? Thanks.

if you use them make sure they are installed right, and check the torque on everything every once in a while.

discount tire turns away cars with wheel spacers. we wont even touch them.

what would you recommend for offset to look good with 32x11.5x15 tires. 15x8 or 15x10 rims? thanks

I would go 15x8 but if you are planning on getting bigger tires at some point I would go 15x10.

alright. Do you think the 15x10 would not look good with stock lift on 4x4 ranger? Do you know if the tires will stick out of the wheel wells too much?
