WTB: 4 Wheel Spacers

Picking up my D 90 next week and I'm looking for 4 wheel spacers so I can throw a set of Freestyle alloys on. If anyone has them, shoot me a PM

Buy these. Tons of us are using them. You really don't usually need 4 as 2 in the back are commonly unnecessary. Search ezaccessories for more details on this forum

I thought you did need them in the rear (due to drum brakes) but not necessarily in the front? I plan on going with all 4 for asthetic reasons

I've read up on the ez accesories one. Just wanted to see if anyone had them a little cheaper

Haha I was going to say unless for aesthetic reasons (although you really can't tell - I have before and after pics somewhere if you search around).

You really can't beat $100 per pair for brand new spacers from a supplier a ton of us have used without issue(s). There may be cheaper out there, but I'd rather have something just a tiny bit more expensive that my peers have tested and given positive feedback on.

If you want to be "cheap" just do the fronts for now and do the rears once you've saved up more $$.

Good idea. I'll go with just fronts now and if it looks strange I'll go for rears. Thanks for the updated link

OK now - pics of your 90! Even if they're from the ad.

I'm picking it up from Aaron at GB4x4 next weekend. Here's a pic from the add. Now you can see why I'm changing the wheels on it. It's a solid truck, needs some work on the interior but nothing a few weekends of work can't take care of
