    I just put a Revtek leveling kit on my 08 TRD Sport and Nitto Terra grappler 285/70/17s, but noticed a slight rub when turning hard or doing the same in reverse. My question is in regards to using Spidertrax wheel spacers...would they work, and are they recommended? As far as state law, I live in Texas if that helps...

    With stock rims you will absolutely need 1.25" spacers.

    Hub centric or lug centric? I looked at spidertrax, but am just learning what these two terms mean.

    Lots.....
    I have a set of Spidertrax on mine and I love them. Half-way through my build I realized that the wheels I wanted in the size I wanted them in had the wrong backspacing. So....Spidertrax to the rescue!!!! I haven't done much wheeling yet but they seem to be very well built and machined to exacting specifications.

    do you notice any mpg loss? I know mathmatically you HAVE to lose a bit the that tiny bit of aerodynamic loss, but i wonder if its noticeable?

    I think the the difference between the two is that one actually uses the hub lip to center the spacer and that's basically what holds it there... and lug centric uses the lugs and nuts to center it. I could be wrong, but that's what I think.
