    Pretty much stock for now. New Navigation DVD/CD/TV/AV/Bluetooth Stereo and seat mod spacers added so far.

    I was curious, so I ordered just to see (I got mine for $107.98, they have sales every once and awhile)...this is a steal....I ordered some cheap 1.25" China made two years ago ($160), terrible, loose fit...returned and got some Bora .75" for a lot more. I wanted a little better stance again so I took a chance.

    According to auction, these are American made. Exceptional quality. Don't know how they do it at this price. Nice fit to hub and wheel.

    Bolted up last night, they run smooth, just like the Bora's....

    So, for those on a real tight budget, this will bring a big smile to your face if you are looking to widen your stance and keep your wallet from shrinking too much...:burnrubber:

    really smooth, the machining is dead on (they spin perfectly round), absolute great fit to hub and wheel, unlike the $160 Chinese clones that fit terrible to the hub and wheel (loose) and vibrated....black anodized...how they do it at this price point is amazing...USA made. I used shanked and beveled open end lug nuts on the fronts, no need to replace the short studs with longer units, blue locktite to clamp the adapters down, and the nuts that came with the spacers to button up the rear adapters...drove 150 miles, double checked the torque on the adaptors, all good to go....

    group buy?

    not sure if this post made a difference or not but it looks like he sold 8 sets in the last 24 hours. Ive had these in my watch list for probably 2 years and keep telling myself il order a set later on ahah.

    Why not just get the proper wheels to begin with? Why does everyone on here want to run spacers? :notsure:

    Uh, maybe because of $$$$$, much cheaper....Not everyone is prepared to throw down $800 or more for new wheels...

    I think what happens a lot is people are running a certain wheel and tire set-up and then they need new tires so while getting those they want to go with a bigger tire. Tires arrive and they Reliz they won't fit properly with there rig. So they now need either new wheels with more appropriate backspacing, which is too much money after they just dropped a lot of money on tires so they opt for cheaper spacers.

    Still $400 or so with tax, compared to less than $120 for the spacers I referenced....I am retired, spending wads of cash is not in the budget....there are many here that operate on a tight budget too..someday I may get after market wheels, the 2010 17" TRD alloys I presently have cost me about $60 each...but the backspacing is around 5.5" versus 4.5" on the 15" originals, so the 1.25 is only a slight bump (read .25" more from the stock 15" alloys)...I was running with .75" Boras, but wanted a bit more.

    I want to keep the wheels i have and eliminate the frame rub. Wheel spacers would be the answers.
