Skinny Spacers?

BDS, ReadyLift, Smaxx... You name it, we know about it here.

1.5" wheel spacers with a hub centric flange are common but 1.0" spacers are unicorns. Wheeladaptersusa used to make 1.0", but now listed as out of stock. Do you know of other sources?

2" external strut spacers are also common. 1.25" or 1.5" don't seem to be available. Do you know of sources for these?

tema4x4 sells a 20mm spacer. I assumed this was 20mm of lift so a 1/2" (13mm) spacer. I asked if that was right and they said it is actually 20mm thick so 1-3/16" (30mm) of lift. that is what I'm looking for.

now I just need to find some 1" wheel spacers.

1" spacers would require you to grind off a potentially unsafe amount of the factory lug studs. Probably why they aren't hardly offered. The 1.25" require grinding, but not as much.
