Looking for wheel spacers for my 03 X. Just want to kick out the tires a bit. Nothing crazy. Any suggested manufacturer?

I put 1.25" all the way around on my '03. Ordered them from ruggedrocksoffroad. I like them just fine.
Add red loctite to them and they should stay on. Also make sure all your susp parts are good to go or you'll just compound the problems.
And final point, know that tire shops will turn you down with them on due to liability.

The spacers in front make the tires swing in a wider arc, hitting more stuff, so you have worse tire clearance during turns, but better straight ahead.

For most people this means having to use a smaller tire than they would have.


Our IFS and associated steering geometry is why its like that up front on our X's.


The rear live axle does great with less BS though (A spacer makes you have less backspacing).


I use 1.5" spacers, also from rugged rocks, for just the REAR for that reason.

I use stock 5.5" BS rims up front to maintain turning radius and tire clearance on turns.



This allows me to carry ONE spare with OEM BS....for front and rear.


I can run 33 x 13.5/16 tires with this set-up...and I only trimmed front well plastic at the rear of the wells where the plastic ledge the lower mud flaps used to screw into was. (WAS)



As you can see in the pic, my upper mud flaps are still there. smile


With less BS in front, I'd have to use pizza cutters and/or a smaller diameter tire, both sacrifices being a bad idea where I wheel.

Any suggestions for wheel spacers on a 2010 Off-Road? Same principle? Will be running Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ's in 285/75R16 with Calmini 2.5" levling kit, rear shackles, and add-a-leaf kit.

You can fit those tires, stock, with no lift.

So, don't waste $ on spacers.


laugh


If you wanted to add them just in the rear, it wouldn't hurt anything at least...but, as mentioned, in the front you already have enough tire clearance in the direction you need, and it would rub WORSE IN FRONT if you added spacers.
