Question 20" Enkei Wheel Issue

I just bought a set of 20" Enkei wheels allegedly made especially for Tacomas from e-Bay. The wheels look great, but according to the wheel installer, do not snug up against the hub perfectly (1/8" or so gap). I told them to install them anyway. Has anyone experienced this problem? Is a spacer normally required? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Where does one get a spacer? Would a reputable dealer normally carry these?

I just went on e-Bay and bought some aluminum spacers. I'll minimize driving until I install them. Thanks for the help, GAmntber21!

Sounds like you need to use hub centric rings

Hey sorry I forgot about this thread. The spacer should work just the same. So long as you purchased the correct spacer, it should act in the same way a hubcentric ring would as well as giving you a wider more aggressive stance. I meant to say Hubcentric ring looking back at it, but either should have done the job. How did it turn out?

It turns out I didn't need a spacer at all! After further investigation, I discovered the wheel has a beveled edge at the hub; therefore, it only appears there is a gap. The hub contact area is fine as is & I've not experienced any problems whatsoever. Thanks for your help nonetheless!
