    Recently installed my new Spidertrax wheel spacers so thought I’d post up some pics.

    They make a great product and you get what you pay for. Even though you can purchase other’s like on Ebay for around $100, I just didn’t want to take the chance of getting some Chinese knockoff’s that may or may not be made out of cast and have that be on the back of my mind whenever I drive down the interstate. I used Loctite of course and have already checked the torque of the nuts a couple of times. Once after 50 miles of driving like it states to do in the instructions and found everything to be in spec and then again later on and were fine.


    The wider stance makes it stay a little flatter in the corners with less roll which I like and also a little more stable between 65-70mph and over.
    I had actually planned on getting some 265/75/16’s BFG A/T KO’s to go along with the new spacers at the sametime, but the tires that are on the truck now which came with it when I bought it are in such good shape (85-90%) that I kind of hate to replace them just yet. Not to mention, even though I personally wouldn’t buy these, they really hook up great and couldn’t say enough about them so I think I’ll at least roll with these over the winter and maybe replace them next summer or something as they have quite a bit of life left in them.


    I always get a little obsessive with pics, so there are a bunch of random ones in there as well. Some were taken in a parking garage where I didn’t think they came out as well, and some were not.

    I like the look, I had off sets on my Tahoe but had to remove them only because I got tired after washing it of dirty water mudd ect,slinging up on the sides of the truck, especially on corners, your truck looks great!

    I love the look of these! I'm just wondering will they make my tires wear quicker, or differently than they do now?

    They do not affect tire wear. Would be the same as if you bought new wheels that have less back spacing.

    Thanks guys, I too like the wider stance. Definitely gives it a more aggressive look.

    I totally agree, the next step will be a lift. Then taller tires.:rolleyes:

    I love 'em, couldn't say enough about the tires really. I went wheeling with them out in Gormin and they just kept hooking up in the sand even in two wheel drive, couldn't believe it. They don't howl and also seem to wear pretty good too.
