Most tire dealers near me when I was buying wheels would not install or work on vehicles with spacers, and none of them wold even sell spacers.

I've read enough about spacers to not even want to try or risk it, but I would put one on my spare ONLY if I needed to for clearance on a tire carrier. Get the right backspacing on your wheels in the first place - that's why I bought AEV wheels specifically sized for my JL (which aren't in my profile pic just yet, but are on).

I have a guy looking to buy my sport wheels will my JL wheels fit on his 2018 JK?
The short answer is yes they fit and you have to use the JK lugnuts because JK uses standard SAE threads and the JL uses metric. I've moved my 2018 Rubicon wheels to my step daughter's 2009 JK by doing just that. She's had them on there for about 2 years.

No spacers required.

Count on this information, it is first hand.
