    So, they are sold in pairs. And they are really only "needed" on the front. So, do people just buy two pair and put them all around or buy one pair and just put them on the front? And will that look stupid, having the wheels in the front stick out 1.25" farther than the rear, or is it even noticeable?

    That's what I thought - just wanted to make sure there wasn't something I didn't know (quite possible :eek: )...

    I had spacers put on and could not get the front wheels to balance properly, kept getting a shimmy at freeway speeds, ended up not needing them for the tires I have so I took them off. Don't know if anyone else has had that problem but good luck with yours.

    I figured that this would be the case...

    Thanks for the heads up - I hope it works! What kind of spacers did you buy?

    I have the spydertrax spacers on the front not the rear. I personally dont think it looks right and am planning on putting some on the rear too.

    SpiderTrax is what I have and they are hubcentric. Looks nice on all 4 wheels and you won't get a wobble or vibration with these.
