    I've run them on my JK for three years, and every tire rotation checked them. They have yet to budge.

    The only down side to spacers is most tire shops will refuse to mount, balance, or rotate tires on vehicles with spacers. If you know of a shop that will, you are fortunate. Of course, if you do your own rotations, no problem. I just took the wheels to Discount and had them mounted and balanced originally, dealt with rotations since then myself.

    I think that typically tire shops won't deal with spacers. Spidertrax are adapters, and I don't think you'll get too much grief from most shops with those. Pretty sure I took mine into discount at least once with the spidertrax on.

    The Discount Tire I normally go to doesn't have a problem. I did try a different DT location and they wouldn't touch it.

    looking to replace shocks and add spacer lift...I do not off road at all just like the height of a lift
    I just ordered these yesterday from Wheelers...I called my local Americas Tire Co. before ordering and told the tech I am thinking of ordering spacers and asked if they would still service them, at first he said, "no we wont do anything with a wheel spacer on..." and I was thinking I could not get them...then he continued with "unless it is hub centric..."

    Then I got excited because I knew they were hub centric...so I was good to go...as maxamillion said they are probably actually technically called an adapter so there is not an issue...if a tire shop ever gives any guff, I would throw out the terms adapter and/or hub centric and that should aleviate any issue they might have.

    FWIW, when TAC1 inquired about my running the Spidertrax 1.25's on my truck I did a quick search and found that some aerospace guys drew these and the wheel in a CAD program. The program was able to acomplish FEA of the spacer and wheel.

    Turned out the spacer is considerably stronger the the wheel itself. The predicted failure location when using Spidertrax was the lug nut holes in the wheel.

    I'm here for knowledge folks, please feel free to inform me. -Pioneer Double-Din Receiver -TRD 6-Speed Shift Ball -Low profile black UWS tool box Ordered/En Route: -Wet Okole seat covers -Weather Tech Digital Fit Floor Mats Desire: -Bilstein 5100 Adjustable Shocks -1" Hub Centric Spacers -285/65r18 BFG All Terrain TA K/O's
    It's an old thread but it could be where I find my answer. I'm considering a 2.5" Toytec spacer lift on my '08 TRD Sport access cab and have 18x9" BBS RW wheels with 5.4" back spacing and was told previously that 1" wheel spacers will allow me to clear the UCA if I put on 285/65r18 BFG AT KO's with minor fender trimming. Does this sound feesable?
