Eighth inch wheel spacer? Any leads?

Does anyone know if I can purchase a 1/8" wheel spacer? I know they have them in one quarter inch, but that would be too much for my truck. My rear wheels touch the frame with the suspension flexes and a 1/8 inch spacer would do the trick, just can't find one. If it possible to have one milled down, any ideas who could do this? Thanks

I was looking for body mounts when I came across these. Scroll down to wheel spacers

Hard to imagine that a 1/4" spacer wouldn't work just as well. If things are so close that a 1/8" will work and a 1/4" won't- you're gonna hit under some conditions likely as not, anyway.

Just make them from 1/8 thick 6061 aluminum. It ain't rocket science.

You read my mind! Can't imagine the tolerances are that close. If they are, then it might still rub with sidewall flex and another 1/8" clearance.
