Here's the deal.........



I replaced my wide track rear end with a narrow track, of course, it is 4" narrower now.........

So, I need a quick fix to offset my rear wheels 2" each.

I currently have 33x12.5 on stock 15x7 rims. I hear that if I mount my rear tires on stock 15x8 rims (from an older CJ), this would provide the correct axle width over-all.

I can't afford to buy and swap the rear end for the correct one at this time, so, please help.

Thanks

Have I been black listed or what?

No one can offer any advice?
You didn't really ask a question. ;)

I assume you don't want to change your backspacing so why not buy or get some wheel spacers made?

Not a question, but, I was expecting some kind of reply!

Like......


"I know where to find some spacers"

or

"I have two old 15 by 8's to sell you"




You know what I mean?

what's the big deal?... do the tires interfere with the body?
100% the same track width front and rear is absolutely not neccessary.... unless it's for looks

I couldn't pick up from your original message if you were open to buying new wheels. That's the route I'd go for sure, I've heard wheel spacers can be tough on your ball joints (or was it bearings?) who the hell knows though :p

Have to ask someone with a brain :)
