    i dont think you'd need a spacer...well...you wouldnt if you bought the 15x8 wheels from Wheelers Offroad...i dunno about Rockcrawlers

    that size SHOULD fit...but you may have some rubbing...especially if your suspension is worn out...might have to do some trimming

    If they require spacers, you'll need at least 1/4" spacers and with those, I would recommend 1/4" longer studs. You could also go with the thicker spacers(spidertrax) that bolt on and have studs built in.

    My guess is yes, you will need spacers for those 15" wheels.

    1/4" spacers at least. I had 15" Cragars that hit the caliper.

    1/4" spacers. The wheels were 15x8 and I think the B.S. was 4". The spacers are only needed for the front. Alot of guys don't like those thin cheap spacers, but after a year, I didn't have any problems.

    If you mean studs, I would recommend longer ones. I didn't get longer ones and didn't experience any problems, though. Make sure he has the conical lugnuts. The shaft style lugnuts from the alloy wheels won't work.

    he had the 16 inch alloys, so i'd say he needs to replace the studs...any idea where to get them?

    You(he) can get lugnuts just about anywhere that sells autoparts. Shop around. As for studs, talk to the parts guy at the dealership. If you replace the studs, you'll want ones that are a little longer than the original to make up for the 1/4" of spacer.
