I'm sure that he means "spacers".

Spacers can be used to properly position a wheel within the confines of the wheel well and to avoid the tie rods, but, the design and quality of the spacer is critical for proper function. The typical spacer is a POS and will give you far more grief with unbalance than you could ever imagine.

Furthermore, if the wheel is too wide, it will cause the tire to contact the fenderwell on full spring compression. I'm sure you don't want this.

The cost for a very well made set of spacers to do the task for which you intend is about $400. I'm doubtful whether you can justify the cost.
