    +1,

    It's Spidertrax that only offer them in 1.25 and 1.5".

    Here are some shots of my 1.5" Spidertrax spacers installed...

    Well I've got an '04 4WD that I put '08 TRD wheel like this on and I've got a little rub. :( So I was gonna put on spacers to offset them. I think they put me in 1 inch so I'm behind the 8 ball 1 inch that's why I was going to go with 2 inch spacers to try and bring them out. What do you think?

    I'm probably the wrong person to ask about "ride." I put spacers on the rear to try to even out what I'm doing to the front. My front long travel pushes out the front wheels 3.5 inches on each side. The 1.25" spacers were just to try to help the ass not look so anemic. That being said, I was cruising around for the last week with the rear spacers and it felt the same as it did before the spacers.

    If you plan on doing them up front, I'll recommend you get the ET acorn lug nuts from All Pro expecially if you do the 1.5" spacer. The wheel studs up front are not as long as the ones in the rear.

    All Pro also makes spacers that are functionally (but not aesthetically) equivalent to the spidertrax ones. Just make sure to get the hub AND lug centric spacers. Lug centric only are no bueno.

    No difference, maybe a little flatter in the corners due to the widened stance. :p

    I found a set of 4 - 2" on CL for $140, with the ET lug nuts. I only rub when doing a "U" turn. Think that will fix my problem and give me that wider stance?

    If it's 2" then they are not hubcentric. I wouldn't.

    Depends on where you are rubbing

    Yeah, they'll cure the frame rubbing problem, assuming that's where it's rubbing, but see if you can find out what brand they are.

    You want to stay away from one's that are made from cast, a lot of no name branders out there like you might find on Ebay are. When it comes to wheel spacers, they are not something you want to skimp on for ovbious reasons, so go with a set that are made from a reputable company like All-Pro, Spidertrax etc.

    Keep in mind, you may have to trim a little of the inner splash guard plastic after you install them. It's hard to explain, but sometimes when the wheel is placed out quite a bit further, it can actually end up causing more rubbing in other places like the fender flare, lower valance and splash guards for example. Possibly the pinch weld too. There is a happy medium somewhere in the middle, it all just depends on each particular set up and situation.
