    I don't have any pics, but there are lots of people running wheel spacers. Are you running stock wheels or aftermarket wheels?

    Thanks. I'm extremely happy with how it turned out.

    Thanks. x2 lol.

    Thanks. It is a little of both, I guess. I wanted to go with the all black but I wasn't really sure how to go about it. So I just started buying parts that I thought would look right on the truck.

    The cragar soft 8's were only offered with a 5" backspacing in the 16x8 wheels, so I ordered the spacers at the same time as the wheels and prayed that they fit. I figured they would though because with the spacers, it makes the backspacing 3.75" and there are people making them fit on these trucks with 1/4" spacers.

    thats cause your using adapters not spacers, which are lethal if they're not threaded on very far.


    Spacers have new studs, so the spacer is bolted to the hub, and the wheel to the spacer.

    ohh, the spacers should have come with nut's that will fit inside the hole where they are threaded on, and your stock lug nuts should fit on the spacer like it would normally fit on a hub.

    Hard to tell if were on the same page without a pic.

    On another thread you said these weren't spidertrax and that the rears went on fine. I'm wondering if your spacers are sitting flush against the front hub surface. If they aren't, that would make it seem like the studs are too short.

    Are these spacers lug centric or hub centric?

    That is fine if the ID of the center hole is greater than 108 mm. Otherwise the spacer will not fit properly.
