Default wheel spacers

I believe this is the right place to post this. Well, I want my blazer to look meaner. So a wider stance would help me come closer to that. Would anyon recommend some spacers? Are they safe? Any certain brand or type that is better than others? I don't do any hard core offroading. Thanks!!

I have a pair i bought off ebay. Cant remember seller...i have had them on for couple years. Have never had a problem. However alot of tire shops wont touch them...just an fyi. So get ready to do own rotations and such. Go for hub centric though. And search ebay for wheel adapters as well...people call them diff things. There are pics in my build thread.

I haven't heard any issues with running them as long as you aren't taking corners at 100 mph, which you probably won't have to worry about The only draw back is you have twice as many lug nuts that need to be tight.

I'm thinking the 2.75 in the back and 1.25 in the front. Would that even them out as well? I think I read the bacl were 1.5" in from the front

yeah, that sounds right on the diff between front and back.
why not get some wheels with 4.5 backspacing, that will get you 1.5 inches right there.
then adjust for diff using spacers.
