    you shouldn't need any spacers for the 18 x 8.5 front wheels. For the rear I would need to know the wheel offset first.

    use adapters, much safer in my opinion...

    I had my stock rims widened in the rear to 10" and i have to run 1" adapters for them to fit. Not sure if the rims have the same offset though

    where did you buy them from? you were able to get your rears to stick out just a bit more with adapters?

    Does anyone know if you would need a spacer for a 18X10.5 Rear wheel w/ a 56mm offset?

    it really depends on the offset of the wheels.

    i had to get mine from a local wheel shop in tampa. They were hard for me to find and pick up the same day. And yes my tires defintely stick out more.

    To answer my own question, I ended up needing to buy a 1.25" spacer for my 18X10.5 wheels. Otherwise the bump stop would have shredded the crap out of the tires.

    Their running Hub spacers, they bolt up like a wheels does and have wheel studs mounted on them that your wheels bolt to. There completely safe, but I would still recommend get them with built in hub-centric rings.

    Make sure you roll the lip on the fender well because it will cut up the tire when you turn sharp. My brother didn't know to do that and he had a 1.25 on "19 and it sliced into the tread.

    Yeah, I found that out the hard way. Thought i had enough clearance until I backed out of a steep driveway. The lip sliced a good chunk out of the corner of the tread, but luckily enough it didnt dig deep enough to make the tire unusable. I then rolled the fenders and havent had any trouble since.
