    I was wondering if these would fit my 2000 Tacoma, 2.7 4WD. I have manual locking hubs, and that’s the only thing I’m worried about. They have the right center bore, just not sure if they will fit with the manual locking hubs. Also will I need to get new lug nuts? If anyone has a 2” set up on their truck it would be awesome to see what you’re running.

    I mean, they say they'll fit.

    6 on 5.5 and hubcentric is what you need, yeah.

    Not that I trust Amazon to give me correct information on critical vehicle components, though.

    THat said, 2" wheels spacers is kind of a lot. Any particular reason you're looking for such big spacers?

    yes
    Hub centric spacers may not clear the manual hubs and may require modification to fit...I am running lug centric spacers on my truck with manual hubs and after many miles of abuse on 35s they are still going strong.


    Here is some info on the modifications: DSC_0213_be04d935ea2adc76ff26330e314e852a9827499f.jpg

    Just looking for a wider stance because I don’t have the money to buy 12 wides. I always heard I needed lug centric...

    Hubcentric was always what I've seen/heard, as that properly centers the spacers, but granted that probably is usually for ADD hubs.

    The modification seems easy enough, though.

    If I were you, though, I'd look for some spacers from a reputable off-road/truck supplier, not Amazon. Would suck for a wheel to fall off because you wanted to save a couple bucks.

    no I totally agree, just wondering if these are the specs in looking for and if they’ll fit

    @Wulf is right, Hub Centric wont fit manual hub without modification.

    I run Spidertrax hub centrics with my manual hubs, but I modified them like the picture he posted.

    My suggestion, if you're going to run spacers, don't run anything but spacers from a reputable Off Road supplier. I wont run anything but Spidertrax... but there are also options from Trail Gear, AllPro and others.

    I also wouldn't suggest going more than 1.5 inch spacer. Personally, I wont run over the 1.25s I have... I definately wouldn't run 2 inch spacers... no particular reason, or evidence. It's just my preference.

    You know it's possible to get counterfeit parts on Amazon... right?

    I understand what you're saying... but it's a lot less likely to get fake spidertrax spacers from someplace like @Wheeler's Off-Road Inc than it is to get fake Spidertrax spacers from Amazon.

    WHAT??? :eek: I'm shocked I tell you. SHOCKED.

    Yes Captain Obvious, I get that.

    Amazon also doesn't have the faintest clue what actually fits your vehicle, and they sell cheap Chinese knockoffs.

    So you might as well buy your stuff from a supplier that knows what they're talking about. Hell, even support a local business.

    It doesn't matter on brand. All hub centric spacers would need to be modified to fit with manual hubs.

    modified? So they won’t go and fit snug right out of the box?

    If you are looking for spacers for your 2013, then you don't have manual hubs and don't need to worry about it. Get Spidertrax spacers for your truck and you are good to go.

    Manual hubs require that you get out of the vehicle and turn the knob on each front wheel to lock the hubs in. Your 2013 is ADD and doesn't have that. Keep in mind, you are in a thread in the 1st gen forum.
