    Whats up guys. After alot of searching i see that alot of you have spidertrax wheel spacers. I am wondering how are the all-pro ones that some of you have? I know its cheaper by like $10 or so and i would like to know if they are just as good. And also, any of you got pics of 1.5'' on your trucks?

    Im thinking i wanna get some since i got my paycheck yesterday :D

    I've had the All-Pro 1" for over a year with no issues at all. I live at the coast so I've been looking for corrosion, but so far none. The anodizing on the Spiders should be better, but like I said, no issues with AP either.

    I have allot of AP stuff on my truck and in general their quality is good. Most everything they sell comes without instructions and that causes problems. You can't even get enough information to make good choices about what you buy. They sold me a set of Bilstein shocks to go with my Expo springs and come to find out they are too short! WTF:confused: I've had other unhappy surprises too, so now I'm leery of them. Stuff like that happens too often, and that is why allot of people have a bad attitude toward them. To be fair though, most of their items are well designed and built in my experience. They need to hire someone to overhaul their communication and information.

    i've had allpro spacers on my truck for about 8 months. they've performed just fine. no complaints.
    i chose them due to not wanting the blue color of the spidertrax (to be seen through the wheel opening).

    Sorry for the late reply guys. I'm at school on my phone lol.
    Looks like majority rule for spidertrax but anybody else with the all pros? I mean there cheaper because it doesn't have the coating on it right? Just trying to be sure :p

    Spidertrax. Good customer service after I over torqued and broke a stud. They sent me the stud free, I paid shipping only. Also helped me even though I got the spacers second hand.

    Anodized coating is better I believe since I live in the salt belt in the winter.

    Hmmmmmm
    Do spacers hurt the truck in the long run due to the stress on your bearings?

    i have spidertrax too, no compliants, but if people are running all pro and have no problems, I would have liked a little wider stance....so i would have preferred a 1.5 instead of 1.25 if that makes any difference to you

    Lets see spidertrax are $100 a pair and all pro has them at $90 per pair...if i buy 2 pairs of all pros, does the $20 difference make any difference?

    I have a set of all-pro 1.25. I got them because I didn't want the blue. They are great spacers but all-pro's costumer service sucks. If I had to do it all over again I would have went with spidertrax. I will not give another dime to all-pro.

    Using a spacer is no different than using a wheel with the same net backspacing. Backspacing does not affect bearings, but offset will. Many times when you install a spacer you also increase offset. In general I don't think it is a good idea to use the bigger spacers. It can affect both bearings and steering geometry. How much is hard to say............

    Spacers would have the same effect as wheels with different offset than factory wheels.
