      Review & Installation Video

      The RedRock 4x4 1.5-inch wheel spacer is for those of you that have an 1987 through 2006 YJ or TJ, that are looking for a way to push those wheels and tires out just a little bit to give you a little bit of extra room or just because you like the look. This is gonna be a one out of three wrenches for the installation, and I'll show you how in just a second. So when you add a wider tire to your Jeep, sometimes you need to push those tires away from the vehicle a little bit so you don't hit the tire on either the control arm or the frame or maybe the sway bar when you're turning. So if you have a set of aftermarket wheels, chances are they have a little bit less backspacing built into them to do just that, to push the wheel and tire package away from the Jeep a little bit. But if you're running a factory set of wheels with those wider tires or maybe you bought aftermarket wheels but they're not quite in the right backspacing, you can add a wheel spacer to essentially decrease the amount of backspacing on that wheel. Now I know that wheel spacers are a hotly debated topic, whether or not they cause more wear and tear on some of the other parts and pieces of the Jeep, whether or not they're even safe to run, but we're not gonna get into all of that in this video. We're just gonna talk about these ones from RedRock 4x4. So again, if you need a little bit more space for clearance or for look, this is gonna be a pretty good choice for you. It is going to be a billet aluminum wheel spacer and one thing that I like about them is that they are hub-centric and what that means is that the center of the spacer it makes contact with the wheel hub on the Jeep all the way around and that's what really carries your load. The lug nuts are there to help with that and to make sure the spacer stays [inaudible 00:01:32] to the hub, but these are not going to be a universal spacer which are usually going to be lug-centric, which means all the weight are just carried by the lug. So is going to be a safer option for a wheel spacer. A hub-centric one is going to be the one and that's gonna be the way to go, which these ones are. The other thing I like about these is they come with everything you need to get them installed, so they're gonna have these lug nuts here that go on the inside to hold the spacer to the factory hub. You're going to use your factory or whatever lug nuts you're currently using to hold your tire onto the hub for these outer studs here so you have everything you need as far as hardware. These studs come pre-pressed into the spacer, which is pretty common these days, but again, it is nice you don't have to do any work there. These are also going to come with some thread locker, which is always really important to use on these inside studs here. So you make sure that these lug nuts don't come loose and your spacer can't come loose on you, so you wanna make sure you use that and that is included in the kit as well. So overall pretty all-inclusive. Another thing that I like is that they're fairly inexpensive compared to the other ones on the market because these don't have any sort of anodizing on them or any sort of coloring. You don't really see these depending on your wheel so I don't see too much of a reason to have some kind of fancy color, especially if it's gonna drastically add to the cost. So these are going to be a little less expensive than some of the other choices on the market coming in at right around $60 for a pair of them. Now of course if you do need four, you're gonna be buying two pair, but most of them are priced in pairs. So it is a pretty apples to apples comparison. So overall pretty good deal for these. Like I said, very easy to get them installed. Let me show you how. For this install, we used a 19-millimeter deep well socket, but if you have aftermarket lug nuts, you may need a different size. We also used a 1/2 inch pneumatic impact and a 1/2-inch drive torque wrench. So, of course, the first step in this very simple one out of three wrench installation is going to be removing the tire where the wheel spacer is going to be. We're gonna be working on the front right tire of our TJ today. So we'll zip off the lug nuts and get the tire out of the way. So this is what your wheel spacer is going to look like when it comes out of the box. You have your new lug nuts that are gonna hold the spacer onto the factory hub that are screwed onto the studs. You're going to be removing them from there in order to get them in their proper location. This is just a storage location. So your spacer pretty much just sits over top of the factory studs like that. You unscrew each of your new lug nuts and pop them on your factory studs and then tighten them down. Your new wheel spacers are going to come with some thread locker here and you're gonna want to use that on these factory studs on the factory hub and your new lug nuts that come in the kit. That's what you want to use the thread locker on, not on this outer thread here. And the reason for that is that you want your wheel spacer to stay on there nice and tight. You want no chance of these coming loose because if they do, you can't see it when they're coming loose because of course the wheel and tire are going to be over top of it. So make sure you use the thread locker. We're gonna be taking ours right back off again after we show you how to get it installed so we're not going to be using it, but you want to make sure that you use it at home. It's very simple. Take the cap off, you'll clip the end of the plastic, put a couple of drops on the threads before you spin on your new lug nuts and then torque those lug nuts down. Once you have all the lug nuts started by hand, you can tighten them up. Once you have all those tightened down, you do want to make sure that you fully torque them to 110 foot-pounds. Again, this is very important. You want to make sure these aren't going to come loose. So we have our torque wrench set. Obviously, this isn't the exact setup that you'd want to go with. We have a 1/2-inch to 3/8 adapter in there, so our torque rating is going to be a little bit off, but unfortunately, we couldn't get our 1/2-inch 19-millimeter socket to go inside this hole. It is a little bit tight, so you want to make sure you have the right tools so you can get the right torque setting. So that's gonna do it for the installation. Of course, we've done one tire. You're going to install the rear spacers on every one of your wheels and you're all finished. So if you are looking for an inexpensive wheel spacer to push the tires out just a little bit for either clearance or for the look, I would recommend this option from RedRock 4x4 and you can find them right here at extremeterrain.com.

        Solved issue of 31” tires rubbing on frame

        Put these 1.5” spacers on and it immediately gave me the turning clearance needed for my new Cooper 31” tires to clear the frame with no rubbing Awesome product and the customer service was amazing

        1 1999 Wrangler - stranded

        Right front wheel fell off

        Spacer was installed for about 3 months when 2 of the studs sheared off, and the other 3 lug nuts were pulled strait off the threads. Normal, in-town daily driving. No off-road driving.

        almost perfect

        I ordered 4 spacers. Two of them had an inside diameter that was too small to use my 4 way or my black power socket in. Bummer the other two were correct though and went on easy and solve my rubbing tire problem. I've returned the 2 incorrect spacers and hope to get 2 more back to me pretty soon. Extreme terrain usually does a great job. In fact I'm gonna order some brackets for my light bar right now

      How often do you need to take the wheels off and confirm these are still torqued? I've heard as often as every 1k miles? I put on 20k a year so it seems a little much. Thanks

      • Hello, since its recommended to Rotate tires at ever Oil Change, we would recommend checking the torque then.
