Does adding wheel spacers change the steering feel at all (45mph/55mph regular roads, etc.)? Something tells me it would steer better having the wider stance.
Second this emotion.
Adding the spacers gives the jeep a more stable feeling I would say. I haven't noticed any difference in steering.

Spidertrax/synergy state to torque to 90 ft/lb. Chrysler spec for the JL is 130 ft/lb. I would go in between at 100.
The Jeep JL owners manual says 130 ft/lb. The 130 ft/lb, drive 50 miles, then check at 120 ft/lb, is per the Spidertrax instructions.

The spacers do make the jeep feel more stable at a wider stance. It isnt much, but it does help. No issues at highers speeds. If you don't plan to get aftermarket wheels, I recommend getting them. I have will be getting some Method wheels in a few months, this was a cheap solution for my 37s in the mean time. Just a little more extra maintenance, make sure your spacers stay torqued per spec.

Yup the synergy ones I bought said said 90. I went in between the two and torqued at 110. I checked them after 50 miles and they didn't budge.

How hard would it be to remove the spacers after using the red loctite?
