The thickest one I've ever seen is 1" for a 5 on 5. J 46 in the long run a wheel spacer is way way cheaper than a stack of wheels, not mention all the wheel and tire combos needed if you run many dfferent tracks.

We didn't have time to change the tire to the correct offset wheel before the main. The guy next to us had a 2 inch bolt on spacer that worked great. He said he got it from Speedway . I was assuming he meant Speedway Racing.I looked at there web site and didn't see them.It was a good looking piece. Looked like they were made from a CNC machine.

That actually sounds like a good idea.We go from a 2" to a 4" when it gets dry on the RR.
With a 2" spacer i could use the 4" all the time.
I'll take one too!!!!!!

SouthWest speed is the answer;
nice black anodized Billet AL, course 5/8 studs. Nice pieces.

Its much easier to use spacers than having 6 different wheel off-sets.

I use a 1" spacer all the time, but you're going to need REALLY long wheel studs to use a 2" spacer. I'm not sure where to find studs that long.

the one i seen used short wheel studs, so you bolted the spacer on the wheel, then it had a new set of studs made on it. so you did not have to have super long studs, and less wear on them.

I'd like to see that spacer. I've seen adapters that bolt onto the front rotors and convert them from 4 3/4" to 5" on 5". Is that what you're describing? I haven't seen anything like you described that would bolt on the rear. I'd be interested in checking out those 2" wheel spacers.

I did find the spacer! It is Southwest Speed that sells the one we tried. It is well made 2 inch spacer that bolts to the hub and you use the bolts from the spacer for your wheel.I am sure there are others that make one.

You could do that. The 2 inch spacer Southwest Speed sells have bolt holes for you hub studs and new studs for your wheel. This is much stronger than bolting on so much to a 3 in stud that you would need.
