    I wouldn't trust eBay junk for wheel spacers. Spend the extra money for a set of Spidertrax spacers.

    Can someone help me understand spacers? Why not just buy a set of rims? They're just as expensive.

    I had actually run a set of those for awhile. I bought an ebay set that was maybe even a little cheaper than that but I made sure the listing atleast said made in the US...
    I didnt have any issues for 15k miles. Just be sure to take your time and tighten your lugs evenly since they are lug centric.
    But in the end I still ordered a set of spidertrax just for peace of mind.

    They do not even mention if they are hub centric? If not you will have issues with them. To me something like spacers I would not bargain with. Get bora's or spidertrax. They are hub and lug centric and are proven to have no issues with our trucks.

    Spacers are only $200 all 4. I've never seen a set of wheels for $200.

    They are definitely lug centric. If you take your time and tighten nice and evenly you can get them pretty close to center but hub centric spacers do get rid of that chance for a vibe.
    I had a set and didn't have an issue with vibes... but i eventually ditched them anyways

    I made 108mm-106mm pilot bushings for my lug centric spacers... Basically converting them to hub centric. It's an easy task if you've got a lathe.

    It was much easier for me to contact Wheelers and get a set of Spidertrax. If you are gonna do it, might as well do it right the first time. That way you don't have to spend the extra $ to fix it later.
