    Do you have to get longer studs in order to use them? I have 10 bolt axle with 6 lug drum brakes.....

    Nope, good spacers have their own studs. Follow the links to Offroad.com, they've got a good product review on a set.

    Got me a set of 1,5" performance wheel spacers. They sweet [​IMG][​IMG] They bolt on to your existing studs with your original wheel-nuts. Then they come with new nuts for your wheel on top of that. If you get the smaler than 1,5 inces you will have to grind the old bolts down a litle to clear the rim. Not a good idea, besides the 1,5" looks perfect and really fills in the rear wheel-wells!! Highly recomended touch upp to a Blazer!! 65$ a piece if I remember corectly. Link under product rewiues.

    Got mine from Performance Wheel & Tire (see link under Colorado K5s product reviews) for $65.00 ea. Each is 1.5 in. thick (MEASURE front vs. rear track unless your sure), did nothing to exhisting studs, but Perf Whl & Tire won't sell them with 7/16 studs (don't think they're strong enough w/additional 1.5" spacing), though they will make you a set with 1/2 " studs (don't get 14mm as they won't fit thru holes in older rally wheels) and you gotta buy your own lug nuts (get the 1/2 " nuts that take a 3/4 in socket or you'll have to use 3/4" socket on front and 13/16" socket on rear). Like above, made my tires fill wheel wells better and I just had a problem with rear track bein 3" narrower than front!

    I had ordered the 1.5's, but they were out of them so they sent me the 2" ones, but before I sent them back I tried them and they were perfect. So I kept them.

    Will work for beer, parts and tools.
