    1.5\" wheel spacers 8 lugs.

    Where can I get the 1.5" wheel spacers for my 14 Bolt FF to line up the rear tires with the fronts. (1.5" on each side) I don't want to convert to six lugs, I like my 8 lugs. I just want to line my rears up with the fronts while staying 8 lugs.

    i agree with recommending perf wheel... I got a set from them (same type, 8 lug, 1.5"). They are very well made and come complete with all the lug nuts you'll need. Good product,

    good question... i forget. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif Doubt I have a reciept anywhere either, lol. I got mine as part of a "group buy" from a local 4x4 club... so the price prolly wouldnt be too useful anyway unless you planned on buying in quantity.

    The price is around $200 including the lugnuts.....

    It is nice having the same wheel track on the rear, the truck looks more "normal" that way..... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Just called Preformance Tire and Wheel. $85.00 per spacer, so $170.00 + shipping. Not bad. Think I'll have to order them.

    I've been running those same spacers on my 14b for a couple years now. No probs at all, just retorque them a couple miles after the install then everytime you have the wheels off after that.

    I'm going to buy a set as soon as my bank account will permitt. Bills gotta come first, but then it's all spendable on the K5 !!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
