    I'm new and have a question. I want to make my rear wheels wider and I see this on Ebay:

    Chevy Blazer or Truck Wheel Spacers Item number: 2459386777
    Will these work and are they recommended?

    Thank you,

    George

    39 people looked and nobody replies? I guess I won't bid on these things since they are not worth commenting on. Are there any better spacers I can purchase from a vendor? Any suggestions? I would like to make my rear track wider.

    Thanks in advance for a reply.

    George.

    It doesn't say. I will see if I can find out from the seller.

    Not knowing who makes the ones you are looking at, or what width, etc., I can only comment in general. I've been running Performance Wheel spacers for about 3 years now, with no issues on 14 bolt rearends. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    If you want to make the rear the same width as the front you only need a 1.5" per side spacer... Performance Wheel does make some good spacers.

    Just and FYI for those interested. I recently purchased a set of Hub centric 3 1/2" steel spacers for my Hummer wheel upgrade from Arrowcraft. These things are a work of spacer art. They even have 5/8" wheel studs instead of 9/16". The only drawback is that they are heavy. They are as cheap or cheaper than the aluminum Performance spacers depending on size. Again just food for thought. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    The guy just emailed me and said he measured the spacers and they are 1-1/2" wide each. Go figure.
