    Hubcentric spacers will have a little hub ring for the wheel hub to center on (look at the spidertrax spacers below)

    Get wheels with a smaller backspacing.

    If you must have wheel spacers, get Spidertrax. Lots of guys run them on here and have no complaints.

    Were you trying to stick with stock wheels?
    If so, I wounldn't consider any spacer but the spidertrax ones (because they are hubcentric).

    Factory wheels are hubcentric. Most aftermarket wheels are lug centric. If you attempt to use your factory wheels on a spacer that is lug centric, you sir, have a deathwish.

    Without a spot for the hub to center on, well there's no way to center the wheels. Factory lug nuts are not lug centric lugs. And you can't use lug centric lugs on a factory wheel. Well...you could, but you'd end up pulling a Jacob Wood. :p

    It'll work for mall crawling. What are your 5100's set at up front?

    No matter what, you're just going to rub the sway bar with a 5" BS and maybe the frame at full lock/compression. I squeezed 285's on my wifes 4th gen runner with factory Tundra wheels (also have a 5" BS). I've driven the shit out of her runner at Pismo before and it did ok. Just tried to avoid full lock. I have the Toytec coilovers on the runner is set at 3" right now, but there are definetly shiney spots on the sway bar.

    Exhibit A:

    Exhibit B (notice the shiney spots):

    Exhibit C (fender trimming required too)
