    Posted my Homer Simpson moment over in the 2nd Gen Forum about buying a set of wheels and tires before I checked the wheel part numbers and discovered that I bought the hub centric wheels when I need the lug centric ones. My question is thus: will the Spidertrax spacers cure my temporary (I hope) stupidity? I have an 06 DC 4x4 and I'm looking at 3" lifts to clear these wheels and tires (AR Chambers and Nitto TG's 295/75/16). I know UCA's are in the mix, just hoping that the spacers will get me by until I find a set of lug centrics that I like. Great info here on the forum, by the way, I enjoy reading all of the threads and the knowledge from you guys.

    Hubcentric is in fact what you need. I dont think you have a problem. Lug centric is the 1st gen Tacos

    I just wish the auto makers would just standardize it one way or the other. That would make life that much easier

    The problem is the stock hub is bigger than most hub-centric rims. I had to buy Lug Centric for mine.

    Yeah, it looks like the stock hubs are about 4.25 inches or thereabouts and the hub openings on the wheels I have right now are a little over 3. I'm just wondering if spidertrax makes a spacer/adapter that will cure this or if I should just keep the tires, sell the wheels and get a set without the aggravation.
