    I just got BORAs not too long ago. Ordered them about the time you posted this. They took about 6 weeks to arrive to my door and were missing one lug nut. After multiple emails and phone calls to Lenny @ Motorsport Tech, I still haven't gotten another lug nug so I have one wheel rolling with 5 instead of 6. Not very happy with BORA, I'd go w/ Spidertrax.

    I've had no issues with BORA and have been riding with them since in Hawaii now living in Oregon. <3

    I'm sure both are good. If you need something less than 1.25", then Bora is your only option (between the two).

    Most guys who have gone on extensive expeditions all seem to have Spidertrax. I don't know if that is due to an agreement/sponsorship or what, but if I got spacers, I'd probably go that route.

    A bunch a cool stickers, a bada ass MetalMiller Tx Longhorns grill emblem painted Hemi Orange, JBA long tube headers with o2 sims, Diff breather mod, Red LED interior lights, Fancy head unit that plays ipod n movies, Also DIY install factory stuff like, factory cruise control, factory intermittent wipers, OME nitro struts with 886x springs and toy tec top plate, JBA high caster UCA's for better alignmnet and dey beefier too, Old Man Emu Dakar leaf springs in da rear with the gear, U bolt flipper, Ivan Stewart TRD rims with 33" K Bro 2's, some bad ass weather tech floor liners so I don't muck up my interior, an ATO shackle flipper for mo travel in da rear wit the gear, also super shiny Fox 2.0 shocks back there too, all sorts of steal armor for bouncing off of the rocks like demello sliders, AP front skid, trans skid, n transfer skid, demello gas tank skid, and a tough as nails ARB bumper with warn 8k winch, I'm sure there's more
    SpiderTrax if you want 1.25", Bora if you want any other size. Disclaimer, you must measure the lug studs to the lug nuts on the Bora spacers or else you'll create a real pain in the ass problem with bottoming out the lug nut and stripping the splines in the wheel spacer.

    with spidertrax, do you need to buy extra long lug nuts as some have mentioned online?

    My spider trax front have about 140,000 no issue not easy miles. Lots of desert miles and canyon driving running 33 inch tires aswell.

    Definitely recommend spidertrax but bora are solid also i know guys running 35s and do heavy wheelin.

    I installed 1" Boras from @Wheeler's Off-Road Inc a few weeks ago fit great and took only about and hour to install. I was looking for a little more clearance between the tire 255/85/16 and UCA and I am happy with the results.

    I’m the opposite. I bought spidertrax and they continued to give me steering wheel shake around 60 mph on a 4Runner. However, I bought two sets of knock offs for a fj cruiser and Tacoma and lucked out with them riding smooth.

    interesting! what are you guys using to torque the lugnuts down to 83lbs, will a drill work? too risky to use manual 12" wrench?
