From what ive seen a 0 offset will get you about the same look. Thats my game plan.
A 1.5" spacer on Sas wheels equates to a -8 mm offset wheel so it's a little more poke than a 0 mm offset.

Territory’s…Then if it doesn’t Poke enough, I will just get Standard flares for my Sasquatch

Here my SAS pkg with 20"x9" w/-12 offset wrapped in 35" Ridge Grapplers. Gave me a decent poke but nothing crazy. Pushed out a little more than 1⅜". I though about spacers for a second, but beings that the factory tires aren't true 35's my decision was made. Glad I went the way I did, almost went 37's...True 35's are mear millimeters away from rubbing inside wheel well at full lock.

I’m wondering why you’d do this.

Pluses
- You like the look, I presume.

Minuses
- Added width is a negative on many trails. I just spent a weekend trying to squeeze my Bronco down wooded rocky trails behind a bunch of jeeps. In no case was width my friend or theirs. On many trails I had zero room for additional track width, indeed the Squatch width alone was a minor hindrance.
- You’ll add stress to all of your front end components without adding capability. We already know the tie rods and steering box are weak points. Small offsets add surprising levels of stress.
- You’ll add vibration…sensitivity to any slight out of balance or cupping will be exaggerated.
- Those Goodyears throw stones like a caveman on crack.

You’d get many of the same negatives with 37s but at least you’d have 37s and lots more capability.

So, not trying to hassle you, just curious if the juice in looks is worth the squeeze in performance.

It’s not lost on me that a Braptor would have been useless on the trail this weekend. It literally would not have fit.

I just finished (today) installing 1.5” spacers on my SAS. I did it for 2 reasons: I want a little more protection for my body….rather have rubber rubbing vs paint and flare…..and better off camber performance. Been in a couple of situations that a little more width would go easier on my seat cover.

Got my 1.5 Bora spacers installed today I think its the perfect amount of poke here’s a short video since it’s better than pics. I plan to keep the Sasquatch wheels and 35s for awhile so this will hold me over with the look I wanted plus gained a little more stability. Bronco has way more aggressive stance now.
How much did installation cost?
Thank you
