    I bought some 16x8 pacer rims but they required a spacer to clear the brake caliper. This made them impossible to balance on the truck due to spacer alignment on the lug bolts..... Does any one run Eagle Alloy 187 rims? Do the Eagle Alloy rims require a spacer as well? I had to return the Pacer rims and put stock rims back on to avoid damaging the front end due to wheel shake

    2005 pre runner double cab long bed needs help with rims that will mount with out a spacer.

    Sounds like the rim offset is incorrect.

    after looking up hubcentric spacers I would prefer to get a rim that doesn't require an 1.25 inch spacer to bolt on... that would put unnecessary stress on my wheel bearings.... would rather find a 16X8 rim with the correct offset and back spacing to bolt straight to the hub insted of making it work and causing new problems.
