Not bad. I have the EZ Accessories ones on my D90, after everyone else recommended them.

They're $88 a pair, but really $100 shipped for 2, if people are looking for new:

Wheel Adapters Discovery Range Rover Land Spacers 1.5"

Their personal page if that listing expires.

Do you like the EZ ones? I was going to order a pair of those on Monday. can't beat $200 shipped, i wanted to hear a first hand review of them before i went for it. How long have you had them on?

I've only had them for a couple of days. I'm running them on the fronts only to stop rubbing the rasius arms, as the rear end tucks in nicely, and I don't want to give that up. There's another one on eBay for about the same price, but everyone who has had them for the Defender (from what I've read) has returned them and gone with the EZ Accessories ones. Gustavo (member here) has had them on I think all of his trucks, and a bunch of other members on other forums. Same boat. I read about them and was hesitant, but it looks like a LOT of people I've encountered are running them without issues for a few years, on multiple trucks.

I drove on them a bunch over the weekend and to the inspection station yesterday, and the turning radius is very much improved!

Before and After pics from outside my garage:

The "street" that my garage is on, is probably about 15 feet wide (at best), so maneruvering into the spot was quite a tricky ordeal, but with the spacers now installed it's much easier.

looks really good! i will have to pick up a pair. wonder how much it helps with stability, if it's even noticable. need to do that tilt ramp down at OK4WD in NJ.

This inspired me to get a pair for the front. I will post pics of my truck with them on too.

I got them and I love them. Turning radius is much better can actually do a u turn in 3 lanes now and my tires dont rub at all. Good inexpensive quick fix.
