Price, reputation, reliability I would guess.

Hub centric vs lug centric are some diffrances between spacers. I have no knowledge of the alloy usa ones. But i have spider tracs and they are great.

I've seen multiple accounts of people who went the cheaper route (non-Spidertrax), and sheared lugs while tightening lug nuts, and having issues with spacers fitting correctly. They then promptly ordered Spidertrax spacers, and never looked back. Spridertrax spacers are proven to work, and work well without any issues.

Another +1 for Spidertrax..never had an issue so far!(I will admit when I first put them on I wanted to drive so nicely cause I thought I might snap something and my wheel would fly off )

I have spidertrax and love them. Got them off of a member on here for a great price. Can't go wrong with a reputable company like spidertrax IMO

I only have one experience with wheel spacers that were on a POS winter beater truck I had and in the winters up in NY with all the salt they corroded and fell apart when I took off at a stop light hahaha. I think the blue coating on the spider tracks might prevent that or so I am hoping haha
