    I’ve seen 1/4 spacers at my FLAPS, and they’re available on Amazon as well, but they just float between the hub and wheel and seem a bit sketchy to me.

    Yeah, Buddy.......Just a bit of pounding & I'm good to go.
    I had a good afternoon today . I sold my existing wheels & tires to a New Pal. He runs a Powder coating / Fabrication shop & is gonna Powder Coat my new wheels for FREE. Just have to get the powder & start prepping them by sandblasting & a bit of grinding. :beer: Mike also said he's gonna dig out the junk spindle for me. I need that for my spinning Jig :beer::beer: ......:cool:

    Hi Boop ,
    I was educated by a machinist that many track & race folks use various spacers alot ? . The 1/4" ones are no more than a big washer. That does , however, move the wheel off the hub, & just relying on the Lug studs . The trick here is to use a hub extender too. This way it's a slight, but solid , mechanical connection. I think of sorta like a Door hinge gain / mortise. ;)

    I use the 1/4" spacers on my jeeps they are nice because you dont need to change the studs and they actually make a huge difference in the turning radius
