Default Need help finding wheel spacers

I cant find any 3/4" thick wheel spacers with a 5x4.75 bolt pattern. I have cragar rims with 4.5" of back spacing so i want the rear wheels to stick out the same amount as the front. If anyone can help it would be appreciated. Thanks.

I used a set of 25mm 1/2 inch adaptors on my truck and they bought the rears out to the same track width as the fronts any good engineering firm with a cnc lathe should be able to make some up easy for a reasonable price

I doubt you will find 3/4" "adapters". The dilemma comes when you go to mount them as you have to bolt them on and the stock studs will be at least 1" long which means the studs will stick out past the spacer/adapter 1/4". If you can find a set you'll need to shorten your existing studs or buy shorter studs.

For normal spacers, I found this in 15 seconds using google shopping. But you'll have to get studs that are at least 3/4" longer than your stock studs.

Later, Doug

Just get Billet Adapters. You can buy them on ebay. I bought 1.25" adapters and they work fine.

I bought 1" spacers for the rear wheels, but I think my studs stick out a little past the spacer. I think it's the cause of a major vibration issue at highway speeds for me. What size studs do 99 4x4 blazers require and what size studs should I buy?

Went to Autozone.com looked up "wheel studs" for a 1999 Blazer 4x4 and looked at the part details. M12x1.5 thread. Overall length of the stock studs is 41.5mm [1.634 inch] with a shoulder length of 8mm [.315 inch] so the stick up length of the stud should be somewhere around 33.5mm [1.32 inch]. Not sure if that 8mm included the head of the stud or not, but you can measure your studs pretty easily...
