spacers

I have those on my explorer. I bought mustang cobra rims(i think they are the 95) To make them fit i bought these spacers(1") They work very well and made my 1997 eddie stance look much better. I've had them for 5 years and not a single problem.

Failed to mention I had to grind the wheel bolts very little. my and 1/8" or even less.

why would you have to grind down the studs? Are these on the factory studs or the spacer studs?

the width of the spacers are shorter than the total length of the studs. when you try to put your rims on they will bump into the studs. You will be unable to put the rims flush onto the spacers.

If your spacer's width is not equal to or greater than the length of your stock studs, you will have trim them.

Yeah but when it comes to something like allready somewhat dangerous wheel spacers, do you really want to risk buying cheap stuff? Ive heard horror stories about wheel spacers, so I refuse to use them because I use my Mountaineer for towing. Id like to set my rear wheels out because they seem too narrow, but Id hate to risk a spacer breaking under a load and a wheel falling off at 60 MPH. That would suck.

Good point. I can't remember exactly but I believe I paid 110.00 for a pair(5 years ago). They are made in Germany not sure of the brand. I've had no problems with them over the 5 years I've been using them.
