spider trax vs. aluminum generic wheel spacers

I just got a pair of aluminum wheel spacers (2 inch) on my 2006 dcsb with a 3 inch spacer lift and aal, I heard people on here say that they are bad and if you get them get spider trax, aren't they both just a piece of metal with some screws and lug nuts? I'm not sure but I want to know your thoughts

wow. 2" wheel spacer is big.

the generic spacers will prob work just fine if you dont beat on your truck.

spidertrax are good becuase they are hub centric

I have the AP 1-1/2 spacers all round too. No problems so far - been about 8 months. Truck is a daily driver and occasionally a snow-machine. Not a whole lot of off road otherwise.

I have a 3 inch lift with 285/75/16s and they did NOT rub before, after the wheel spacers they RUB ALOT on the body so there is no way to fix it, this sucks. Now I have to take them off.

Basically yes, but they are very critical pieces. If a spacer cracks or a wheel stud breaks, your wheel can fall off. Buying from a known brand like Spidertrax or All-Pro gives some assurance that there was some degree of quality control involved in the wheel spacer's manufacture.

why would you even think of leaving them on? do you only have them on the front or all around?
