    So when you placed the order for the adapter the lug nuts did not come with it?

    Shopping around and while reviewing ALL of the different Spacer makers I found that most did NOT include hardware; lug nuts with their sets.....additional cost was added..

    Motorsport Tech DID include mine at the price I was quoted ;)..

    JR. walked me through all of the steps and the young lady handling the phone gave me my answers or found someone who could...

    Great folks to deal with and their product is top notch....now to find time for installing them....

    Grimmis671,

    I stand corrected....longer lug nuts were included BUT shorter assembly lug nuts were not....

    I spent a few minutes today running out to my local Federated Auto Parts store too purchase 12 -12mm/1.5 OPEN nuts to finish my assembly...;)

    None of my Toyota lugs would work due to .75" spacer width...:(

    I am quite sure this is my f@#$%^ up since I asked for longer lugs instead...lesson learned....ASK for everything to install said parts..

    They are on the truck,my UCA's are cleared nicely and unless you have an eagle eye...that .75" from front to back is not noticeable....

    My son helped with the assembly and was quite impressed with the quaility of both the spacers and their finish :cool:....

    There are NO pix due to the running around but when I rotate tires in 3000 miles we will update and re-torque...

    Ordered mine on the 9th through their website. They do have a pending transaction on my credit card...maybe I'll call tomorrow just to confirm everything is going as planned.

    I have no complaints. No vibrations, they stay torqued down, and have held up to a good amount trail abuse. Glad I went with 1" though.

    Same. I recommend red loctite on them though, to be sure.

    I was originally going to get 3/4". The 1" gave me a great stance that doesn't stick out, minimal rubbing/trimming, and I didn't have to worry about the studs.

    Dang, those make me want to keep my steelies and try these, I just want a little wider stance for my RC, Hmmm...

    Looking good,

    So I could have the offset of a Gen1 OEM wheel on my 2012 w/out replacing my stock steel wheels?

    So with the 3/4" spacers the stock studs would have stuck out, therefore, requiring you to trim them down? Do I read you right?

    Based on other experiences, yes. They will poke out a little bit, but depending on your wheels there may be pockets or recesses on the back so this may not be an issue.

    I just like the 1". The stance is good, and I know they will accommodate the wheels I will eventually be getting.

    Damn! I guess I will have to wait and see when my wheels get here. Shitty part is that the wheels have a 4" b/s and if I have to add spacers (cause of caliper clearance), then that is just gonna suck in the sticking out AND rubbing departments

    Looks like it's time for me to remove a stock steelie and see if I have room to clear the .75 spacer, with the stock studs protruding a little.

    May just end up with the 1" jobs!

    Ben,

    You said that you used a 13/16th socket to remove and install your stock lugs. So I might just be stupid here, but I am hoping to install my spacers tomorrow and when I put my 13/16th socket on the stock lugs tonight to test I couldn't get them around the lugs.

    Yeah, wait and see. You might have a few options based on how the wheels fit. But you might have to trim some plastic either way.

    I used this comparison guide to play around with different options.
    http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp

    Plug in the numbers from your stock tire/wheel combo (265/65r16, 16x7 ET+32mm) and compare it to what you want to run (285/75r16, 16x8 ET-12mm).

    Add the 3/4" or 1" spacers to compare (3/4"=19mm, 1"=25mm respectively).

    Try out different combinations to see what to expect.

    Yeah, on the stock lug-nuts. I actually used a 12-point spark plug socket since it was a perfect fit/depth. Try a 21mm if you have metric sockets.
