Wheel spacers are an affordable mod that will make a big difference for your Gladiator’s stance. By spacing your wheels farther out, you can get a much more aggressive look.
From a practical standpoint, spacers also make room for wider off-road tires. They'll create enough space that you won't have to worry about the tire rubbing. Increased tire width gives your rig better traction on difficult terrain, as well as improved stability.
Wheel spacers are fairly simple to install. And selecting 1.75” or 2” spacers will make a noticeable impact on your wheel location. If you want even more clearance for large tires, you can upgrade to aftermarket fender flares. Using 17-inch wheels will give you the most room for extra tire size.
