Question Rear wheel spacers-yes or no?

I did a search and didn't find much on here about them.

Some time ago I was reading about this spacer that was available for the rear wheels that would put the rear wheels at the same track as the front wheels and there was supposed to be improved handling and better off-road traction.

Anyone know about this? Does it help?

This is used in offroading alot with lifted trucks.It gives you more offset so the wheels/tires stickout more and donot rub on the inside of the wheel wells. You would use them on all 4 wheels.

That doesn't quite sound the same. This ad, or whatever it was, said the difference in track between front and rear was the purpose for these things on the rear (narrower) axle. Probably was for climbing, but if they were used on front and rear, there'd still be off-set...plus they were sold in a set of two. These were less than one inch deep.

Wish I could find that site.

Then again, I e-mailed them a question about another product and never got an answer...so maybe they're out of business. Can't understand why...

So, no experience with them? Anyone? Do they tidy up any of the "hunting" issues vans seem to have?

OK, I looked at a site and they are substantially the same, but I see they are offered four to a set, as you say. That isn't what I want to do and the one site only goes to 6-bolt spacers. I need 8.

is this for a van- or chev truck, kuz the front wheels have a wider track for stability in the front.
