I was thinking the same thing. Does anyone have any input on the Ebay Spacers?

Only thing I can see different is the dark blue anodizing on the spidertrax that helps prevent corrosion. The Ebay site doesn't speak of this second anodizing process. Maybe the spidertrax would be the way to go for a long run? I'm only gonna use my spacers until I can afford some backspaced wheels so maybe going cheaper would suit me short term- up to year.

I'm getting closer and closer to wanting to pull the trigger on the Ebay spacers, but another member was telling me where I can get some for cheap locally in San Diego. I'll try to scratch up more info.

.
The difference is that Spidertrax wheel spacers are hub-centric, which reduces the chance of any vibes.

I see no reference to the hub bore size on the ebay spacers, or any mention that they are hub-centric.

It means the spacer lays directly on the hub with no gap. In order for the wheel to then also lay on the spacer with no gap, the wheels themselves would also have to be hub-centric.

If they claim that they are hub centric...make sure you ask what the hub bore size is. Chevy's, Toyotas, and some Nissans all have the same bolt pattern, but not the same hub bore size. That's why I suspect these generic spacers are non-hubcentric.
