    Hey guys, new member here but I've looked around the forums for a while without having an account and I was wondering if I could get some help. While reading through someone's build I saw that he added wheel spacers. To my knowledge they are basically to have your tires stick out, please correct me if I'm wrong. This is something I find very appealing, but I need some help. What brands should I look at, are there any flaws or issues, basically basics. Thanks for reading

    All I find is products for sale, everythin seems to point to that brand. Anyone have any recommendations for size? And I read somewhere that they loosen up every 25 miles, is this true?

    .
    You need to install them with Loctite to keep the nuts in place (not the tire/wheel lugs), I have Spidertax 1.25's in the rear for like 30k miles now and have not had one problem with them.

    Thanks for the help guys, I'm planning on picking up a set of boras but I'm just having trouble deciding on a size. I'm deciding between .25 and .50
