    So , long story short, I have been working with this guy in PA-
    I have an appointment I cant really miss next Thursday, and this evening I was informed I was going to have to provide wheel spacers myself. Not that big of a deal, but I don't know if I can:

    1) find them in time
    AND

    2)find any cheaper than $200 for a set of four...

    I came across this a webpage selling Titan 1.25" 5x4.5 bolt pattern spacers for $30/piece....Something tells me these wont fit....

    Barring these, does anyone know of a place online I can get them for super cheap and quickly?!?!?!

    Tacoma is a 6 lug pattern on most models. Some do have a 5 lug pattern but on lower end models.

    Which do you have??

    Also you are likely to get vibrations from a wheel spacer if is not hub centric both to the brake rotor and to the wheel you are mounting as well. The titan spacer is lug centric which is not ideal.

    The tacoma shares the same bolt spacing as a full size GM truck but has a different bore size. So there are alot of spacers out there with a over sized bore that will lead to the vibes.

    What is the reason you immediately need spacers. Any reason you cannot bolt up the wheels and then get spacer later??

    Since you are a little in the dark on the spacers what wheels are you buying, maybe we should let you know if they will work or not.

    Edit:

    Reading your info it states double cab sport. If this is correct you are 6 lug.

    go straight to the website and order, they are pretty cheap.

    remember our lug pattern is 6 on 5.5, and our hub diameter is 106mm

    ummm....not to doubt you in anyway...but we are absolutely 100% positive this will fit?
    Once I pull the trigger, it looks like the returns might be hard to do AND I only have one shot as I wont be in that guys area anytime soon....

    Thanks!!!!

    whoops sorry I wrote that too slowly apparently!

    I am getting a 2" levling kit, and 285/70/17's BFG A/T's...
    The guy said that he has essentially tried every combo on an 05 he has on the lot and we kept getting rubbing on the left hand turn..

    thats not a wheel spacing problem, that's your cab mount and bumper. Just use a dremel or sawzall

    Also, apparently in PA spacers are illegal if they are long then .25" inch....I had talked him into doubling up two of those, but they still rubbed...which is why now (as I knew would happen- shame on me) have to scramble to get the 1.25"'s and in a hurry!

    The dude said he would have to do that as well...in addition the the spacers...
    Something that confused me was that I made it pretty clear that I wanted the leveling kit on there and was willing to pay for it ($125) and for the labor for it (2 hours)...but when he was test fitting he was not taking the lift into account (by using a jack to pump it up 2")

    dude, find someone on TW near you to do the spacers, it does NOT take 2 hours, and is not worth paying someone to do.

    Which spacers are you looking to get now. All the titan ones on their webpage are for 5 lug.

    Your options are spidertrax, all pro or the BORA

    As stated 285's will likely require trimming even with spacers.

    What wheels are you running. We need to know the backspacing of the wheel.

    i was referring to the leveling kit as well. Are they just top plate spacers? got pics/link? if they are top plate spacers then it takes an hour total for both sides to install
    no problem!
