Are there any disadvantages to putting on 1.5” spacers? I have a 2021 HA that will soon have a 2.5” lift on 33” tires (factory rims). Will there be any wobble or anything? Thanks in advance.

I assume you mean wheel spacers, if so shouldn't have any issues, your steering response will be a bit slower due to the increased scrub radius. Be sure to get a quality brand, and I believe most require using loctite on the threads.

Yes, wheel spacers. Thanks.

There's a company that makes 1" spacers (don't recall their name right now though). That would be a better option, although new wheels with better offsets would be ideal :)
