    I have a 2010 prerunner sport double cab and I just bought all the stuff that I need to install my lift kit. I bought some 16 inch FJ wheels and some spidertrax spacers. I have not installed anything yet but when I put my spacers next to my wheels, they do not seem like they are going to work. The spacers have a lip on them that does not fit into the wheel. Did I get the wrong ones or is there some kind of extra ring that I need get to make it fit flush.

    I bought the Toytec ultimate lift kit with the Dakar leaf springs and I also got 285/75/16 tires. Is this going to work or should I take the tires back and get a smaller size? I do not want to deal with any major rubbing issues.

    I cant wait to get this stuff on my truck!!!!!!

    thanks in advance for your help

    This is good to know. I'm guessing this is OP's problem.

    Sounds like I screwed up. I thought that I could put FJ rims on my Tacoma. I got some of those cool black ones.

    I just looked at the spidertrax website and the part number for the FJ spacers and the Tacoma spacers is the same. WTH

    i just put 285's on my 2011 and no rub with 1.75 5100's. Every truck seems to be a little different but i have no rub and no trimming to do. No spacers yet with stock rims.
