    whats the difference in all these wheel spacers besides the price???

    Spidertrax? $112

    Alloy USA? $89

    other brands that are out there ....

    any one of these better than the other that you have experience with

    Just orders the 5100/AAL lift. 15x8 wheels and 33x12.50 tires...
    I've seen multiple accounts of people who went the cheaper route (non-Spidertrax), and sheared lugs while tightening lug nuts, and having issues with spacers fitting correctly. They then promptly ordered Spidertrax spacers, and never looked back. Spridertrax spacers are proven to work, and work well without any issues.

    Another +1 for Spidertrax..never had an issue so far!(I will admit when I first put them on I wanted to drive so nicely cause I thought I might snap something and my wheel would fly off :anonymous: )

    I have spidertrax and love them. Got them off of a member on here for a great price. Can't go wrong with a reputable company like spidertrax IMO

    I only have one experience with wheel spacers that were on a POS winter beater truck I had and in the winters up in NY with all the salt they corroded and fell apart when I took off at a stop light hahaha. I think the blue coating on the spider tracks might prevent that or so I am hoping haha
