Hey, guys. Sara from extremeterrain.com. And today, we have a review and install of RedRock 4x4's 1.5-Inch Wheel Spacers in Black with the 5x5 Bolt Pattern. These will figure '07 through '18 Jeep Wrangler JKs. These spacers feature a durable aluminum construction for lightweight strength and come in anodized black finish. This kit includes pre-installed studs and lug nuts as well as red Loctite. These spacers are 1.5 inches thick for more wheel and fender clearance as well as an aggressive stance. These spacers feature a hub-centric design with a 5x5 bolt pattern. Coming in at around $60, this is certainly a budget-friendly way to improve clearance as well as the look of your Jeep. I'm giving this install a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It can be done in approximately one hour and it's as simple as taking your wheels off and putting them back on your Jeep. For this install, we used a half-inch drive ratchet, 19-millimeter socket, a 13/16 socket for the lug nuts, an impact gun, and a torque wrench. All right. So the first step in our uninstall is to remove our wheel. Before you put your spacer on now would be the time to put some Loctite on each of the studs. Because we're doing this just for demonstration, I'm gonna skip that step but it's nice to call out and it's nice to have instead of having to go get it. Now we can put our spacer over the factory studs. And using the included lug nuts, install them on each stud. If you can't get them by hand, you can do that with a 19-millimeter socket. Once we have them all on you can tighten them down. At this point, you might want to grab a friend to help you. We're gonna hold the brake so the hub does not move so we can torque down our lugs. All right, with our spacer on and torqueed down we can now get our wheel back on our Jeep. All right, so that is going to do it for the review and install of our spacers. Remember for all things Jeep, keep it at extremeterrain.com.

Great Product, Reasonable Price
Great product, reasonable price. Bought these to give my 16 JKU a meaner stance with factory Rubicon wheels and tires. I used the thread lock and torqued to spec. I check tightness every tire rotation. I've had zero issues and they give my Jeep a meaner stance.Helpful (1)

Please ease my safety concerns about these. Explain the difference between adapters and spacers. Have heard horror stories of wheels falling off at speed. Do they need to be re-torqued to spec frequently? I primarily use at hwy speed. Will this affect my tire psi sensor on a 2014 unlimited wrangler. I have standard 18" rims, How wide a tier can I now mount on those rims with these spacers.
The RedRock 4x4 1.5 in. Wheel Spacers - 5x5 Bolt Pattern (07-17 Wrangler JK) are wheel spacers which can be used to space out your existing bolt pattern to allow you to fit larger tires. Wheel spacers can also widen your vehicles stance or help in centering an aftermarket wheel. Wheel adapters are used to change your vehicles bolt pattern, usually to fit a different wheel that is not made for your bolt pattern. When installed properly wheel adapters and wheel spacers are as safe as bolting on a wheel. Once spacers or adapters are installed it is recommended check them after the first 100 miles, then at least every 3000 miles after that to be safe. Spacers will not affect your PSI sensor. The widest tire you can mount on your factory 18" JK rims is going to be 12.5.
What are the torque specs
These should be torqued down to 85-100 lbs.
My JK has 265/70R/17's - do you recommend a spacer of 1.5in. or a 1.75in.? What will look better?
It would depend on which wheels you currently have, I would recommend giving us a call at 1-844-887-6513 to discuss if the spacers are needed. The look would be more of a preference choice.
I have High Strength Red Threadlocker is that fine for wheel spacers or will it mess my threads up when i take it off?
Red thread lock is for permanent use or high heat only. You will most likely need to hit them with a torch to get them off. Use blue thread lock for this application. I'm an ex mechanic.
I plan on running a 2.5 in lift on my 2015 JK and 305/70R17 tires with the stock rubicon rims. Is a spacer necessary because of the stock rims or can I get by without it? If it's necessary with these be enough or do I need to go with 1.75 in spacers?
Because of the backspacing of those stock Jeep wheels, you most definitely will need spacers to run a tire that wide. A 1.5" spacer like this will work great, but if you like a wider stance a 1.75" would work fine as well.
These wheel spacers will push the wheels out far enough to get rid of the rubbing issues as those tires are larger than the stock tires.
These are sold in pairs of (2) spacers. So, (2) pairs would be needed for all 4 wheels.
While not required having an alignment to verify that everything is in proper position would be a great idea.
The 1.5" spacers will help avoid rubbing on the suspension if you are also running factory wheels. However, We do recommend to lift the Wrangler 2.5" to clear the 35" tall tires in flex and full turn.
We do not currently carry any 1.5" wheel spacers that will fit with the 18 JL however if and when we do carry them they will be located here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/wrangler-jeep-jl-wheel-adapters-and-spacers.html
I did 100 lbs torque.Make sure you remember the thread lock! I forgot on one corner until the wheel and tire were back on! I love to do things twice! I have not rechecked them though as there are too few miles on the installation. Everything appears fine and they look and perform great
It really just depends on what style you want to go for. Most, all four spacers are used.
Those tires will be just over 11 inches wide, so 1.5 inch wheel spacers would be perfect with those stock wheels.
We recommend re-torquing the spacers to the correct amount.
This item will include a pair of spacers.
