    I was just reading some folks interest about this product in another sub forum and figured we could make a complete one here.

    My impression on the hub centric spacer for 2nd gens.

    Great product. Can aide in clearing UCA for larger tires and generally just looks cooler. Plus they might reduce your chance of rollover by widening the trucks stance.

    Comes with instructions if you need them, and thread lock RED.

    Installation is as fast as taking a wheel off and then back on.

    Machining was flawless and blue anodized finish was perfect.

    I got mine directly from Spidertraxx for $99 a pair and free shipping.

    I know there is some controversy about using spacers but as I see it when used on a Tacoma sized tire, generally 35" or smaller, I don't see any concern about added stress to other components. This product is top notch and ain't gonna break or bend, and as long as you install them correctly there is no balancing issues. (if there is just reinstall correctly)

    Does not require an alignment after install.

    Tools needed: Jack and tire iron to remove tire, 19mm Socket on a torque wrench, set nuts at 70 - 80 ftlbs.

    Nope, they're listed at 70-80 ft lbs. I do mine at 78. Higher end but not too high.

    Yeah, I think my inner lug nuts are 19 too. Definitely bigger than 17. OP, you should also add that since your stance is wider, technically the vehicle is less likely to tip over.

    Probably mine too. I just remembered they were smaller than the actual wheel lugs and guessed (don't feel like pulling my wheel right now). I changed it up top. Thanks.

    I installed my set on thursday morning and they are great. I put 265/75/16's on three weeks before on my stock wheels and with the Spidertrax I am in no rush to buy new wheels. The inner nuts (the ones that hold the spacers on) are 19mm as opposed to the truck's lug nuts that are 22mm. My 2010 manuel said to torque the lugs to 85lbs, and the spidertrax say to 70 to 80 lbs. I just did them all at 85#'s. Funny, when I put the first one on, I was not sure I had it seated right and after breaking off the 85#'s I can say that the tire shop easily had the lugs torqued to well over 100 lbs! Great product, and I got mine direct from Spidertrax in about 4 days time.

    Almost a year later and no issues. No vibs from the spacers....but, I had a vibe from day one with the truck when new at about 62mph to 67mph. I believe it's from the rear axel not being aligned. When I had my rear lift done, they told me it was off from the factory by about 14% off center. After they did there best to fix it the vibes are nearly gone. Before, it was like a grinding.
