    Wheel Spacers

    I need some 2" wheel spacers, but all I can find are spacers with threads already on them (where you attach the spacer to your lugs, then put the wheels on the spacer's lugs). I have 2.5" ARP lugs, so I can in theory just get 2" spacers and go straight through to the wheels. The problem is that I can't find just 2" spacers. Is it safe to stack spacers? For example, use two 1" spacers on top of each other? or four 1/2" spacers?

    Thanks.

    I would be scared S***less to stack spacers on top of one another
    I think the ones with the lugs would work out best. What exactly do you have planned?

    I guess I'll just use the 2" spacers with the lugs. I have the ARP studs for a reason, I guess I wouldn't be hooking hard enough on the street to warrant the stronger lugs on the wheels.

    I bought what I think were VENOMOUS's Black ZR1s...he had them widened 2", so they're 13" wide running a 335 tire. I think he sold the car and the new owner didn't like them. I've wanted them forever, and when they went up for sale on LS1Tech, I bought them.

    I love my ZR1s, had them for about two years now. Buying the 13" wide ones saved me from purchasing new 11" wide ZR1s and paying to have them widened. I'm fairly sure I saved money buying the used ones.

    btw...are you selling your tires? I may need new tires by the end of the summer.

    stacking spacers is bad.

    You absolutely WANT the spacers to have their own lugs past about 3/4" to 1". 2.5" arp studs and a 2" spacer leaves you with .5" for your wheels and lugs. NO WAY

    The other bad thing... If you haven't had those studs put in yet, you'll find out soon that the C clips have to be pulled on your axles and they have to be slid out in order to get the studs in. It ran me an additional $200 labor

    They charged you $200 extra just to pull your axles...would you like some KY for that ass raping? To OP like people have said do NOT stack spacers and only get spacers that bolt-on or it will bite you in the ass. IMO
