Default Wheel spacers?

do you run them? talked to a few people and said they dont because of scrub, do think this makes a difference, on the front. The wider the better to a point, thanks

Use them on the trail rig on all 4 corners. Had them on the front of the race rig to allow for tighter steering just 1.5" one though. Always seemed to me to be a bad idea to get the center of the wheel to far away from the center of the bearings.

I agree but it depends on the offset of the wheels. Spacing them out may even put them more directly over the bearings.

I have ran them on all 4 corners for a few years now on my trail rig. It hasn't been any problems. I would think even less problems on a dedicated race rig.

I would like to find some thick 8 lug spacers. Anyone have a tip where I may find them?

I agree, 8 lug spacers are deadly but 5 lug spacers are alright.

I have a set of spacers up front to rectify sway bar rubbing, works for me with 31" tires.
