Oh good, after doing all this research on wheel spacers and settling on them to custom make some spacers for my 5-lug, I was afraid I was gonna have to start over and go through a different company. Thanks for the info! Rep for you!

We are still in full effect. The website should be back up later today. If you need some spacers give us a call. 775.351.1000 or send a PM.

Yeah I'd looked on their ebay store but they didn't have any that fit my application.

Their web site worked fine for me about 7pm eastern today...

Then I followed up with a phone call and spoke directly to Lenny...

These folks have earned my business and I will be placing an order soon...

Advice from an Old Man....deal DIRECT with a land line and you will be very PLEASED ......I was....

Definitely a great quality hub-centric spacer

I've got a set of lightly used 1.25" BORA spacers for 6-lug, 05+ Tacoma
Purchased on the GB, but they are too wide for me.

For sale thread here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...l-spacers.html

would also trade for 1" or 3/4" of the same type...

hey kind of a dumb question but where did you guys get these from? and would spacers help with handling a little?

They can help handling a tad, but its still a truck. Plus going too wide can cause other issues.

If they are still new have your tried to return them or trade them in?

I put a set of the .75" spacers on my truck in July. I just bought a new set of wheels so i don't need them. I have them for sale here.

My research turned up some articles stating, You should never put "anything" on the threads as it changes the Torque Value.
Didn't matter if it was Locktite or WD-40.
If I get around to finding any info regarding the issue, I'll repost.
Correct Torque is the ultimate in keeping your wheels on.
I'd rather post this and be wrong, than not and have someone have a problem.
Anyone else ever heard this?

Sorry to revisit an old thread but I just found this while searching info on wheel spacers.

You are correct Cape Codder that it can have an impact but I doubt it's significant in this case. Mathematically, yes, it makes a difference. Just doesn't matter much in the real world. (in my opinion)

If the threads are lubricated, it's generally a good idea to tighten to a lower torque but knowing that new spec can be a gray area sometimes. If anyone is so inclined, you can look up bolt pretension loading and a few other equations.

warning, science lesson ahead:
Basically, what often matters most to the bolts is the amount of tension they are loaded with as they sandwich your materials together. The problem is that you can't easily measure tension. The torque equations used by engineers include considerations for friction. If you use any fluid on the threads, it can act as a lubricant that reduces friction so those design calculations may become less accurate.

In other words, if you take 1 dry bolt and 1 lubricated bolt, and then tighten them to the same torque, the lubricated bolt is experiencing higher tensile load. It is possible to exceed the material's yield strength if you lubricate and go above original torque spec. Usually, it's not really an issue with larger bolts but I've seen where manufacturing sites have popped heads off of 4-40 and M3 size screws. The other thing is that I've seen cheap torque wrenches with accuracy stated as +/- 25% of their total range.

If I remember correctly, when using anti-sieze on threads, suggestion is typically to tighten to 20% under spec. I don't remember how much Loctite affects it exactly but considering how critical it is for the wheels to stay on, I would not take much off spec.

Since I don't know the specific type or grade of the stud material, I'd feel ok going 5-10 ftlb under spec for my own truck.

Just my thoughts. Do what you feel safe with for yourself.

For the guys that don't have the nut fully threaded onto the stud, that's a whole other can of worms. If it were my truck, I wouldn't drive on a partially threaded nut. You've basically got all of the force acting over smaller contact surface area.

Thanks for confirmin'.
Threw it out there, so people would at least be aware.
Can't control weather they research it or heed the warning.
Figure few saw it, so it's probably good you brought it back up.
I've always been a fanatic about my tires, pressure, rotation, etc.
Because they're what keep you on the road
But the tires leave the vehicle with the wheels if the lugs/studs fail.
My post was prompted by a previous post in this thread,

[QUOTE=momo.75;5459658]Will probably be slammed for it but wanted to post a couple pics of my '03 4Runner with the .75" BORA spacers on. I have the 18" TRD/BBS wheels so they already has some back spacing on them. I just wanted that little extra to get them untucked.







Nice setup! What size fairing? Thule or Yakima??
