Thoughts on hub centric wheel spacers??

Title says it all. Was thinking about installing a 4" lift and 35's on my 2000 cclb 4x4. I like my stock lariat wheels and don't wanna have to shell out more $$$$ for wheels if I don't have to. Was thinking that 2" spacers would allow me enough room to turn with 35's and not rub. What do y'all think?

With a 4 inch lift, you should have no probs running 35s by them selves

I've read mixed reviews where people say they don't rub or they rub only slightly with a 4" lift and 35's. I want ZERO rub, on stock wheels and think that spacers might get me there. Just don't know what the consensus is on a good qaulity set of spacers. My buddy has same year truck with x code springs and a leveling kit on stock wheels with 315's and they rub his front springs pretty good.

Just FYI the spacers I've been lookin at are from wheeladapters.com. 2" thick steel spacers

Those spacers you are talking about from Fred are amazing. I have a set on my dually and I have no shakes. I feel so much better about running good quality steel spacers over the Chinese aluminum units.

I found other steel unit's on Ebay from a guy in texas. They were over 300 dollars and when I got them I realized he didn't make them hub-centric. I returned them and bought the good ones from Fred. I tried to save a few dollars and failed. Oh well.

I used 1.75 2 piece aluminum wheel adaptors on my Jeep, took 5 lug to 8 on 170. I bought them from Motorsport tech & they are hub-centric. They made them custom for me & were like 200$

I have 35's and they definitely rub. Also have the x code springs. No lift. They just rub the leafs. I was thinking about using non bolt on spacers and I think I can get away with one inch spacers with longer studs from Fastenal. Not the bolt to bolt style. ????

I have some wheelspacer.com aluminum spacers that I picked up for a good deal, don't have a ton of miles on them but you can see/feel quality in them. No rub with 315/70/17's

Using them on your jeep is totally different than the strain and load and weight that our trucks will put on them. Wheeladapter.com is Freds site

Cool! I'm most likely gonna go with Fred's spacers( unless I can find better spacers, which I don't think I will). Do y'all think that 2" spacers will give me the clearance off the front springs for 35's?
