    Looking for wheel spacers, at least 1.5". Let me know what you got. . Centric of course. Thanks.


    Edit: looking for 1.5" Hub Centric spacers.

    lug-centric or hub-centric?

    also, personally I wouldn't go bigger than 1.25 inch wheel spacers, 2 inch would be pretty extreme. what are you trying to achieve with the spacers? 255's on TRD sport wheels and 1.25 inch wheel spacers gave me the perfect stance.

    Well I suppose I should have researched more before posting. I am not sure to be honest. These are the wheel's Ill be getting, I'd appreciate if you can let me know if I require hub or lug centric.

    http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/tacomawheels.htm


    Im only going for a wide stance look right now so Im not too worried with going with a 2". Wont be trailing hard in the truck for a while. Ill get 1.25" spacers once I start doing suspension work.



    Thanks for the link buddy but I'd like to get some that are not as used but Ill let you know.

    you dont need a hub centric...it just helps the wheel get perfectly centered on the spacer, you will be fine with a lugcentric spacer, but i would get the 1.5" all pro hub centrics. i had 1.25s with a 16x8 rim on my truck....stance was wide

    there's no reason not to go hub centric. why get something worse when something better costs the same?

    Also, if you're getting new rims just get the correct backspacing for your tire size and you won't need spacers. less parts = less worry

    Im saving alot of money with the wheels from wheelersoffroad already. They are dirt cheap but only come with one type of backspacing(4" IRC). I think Id save more money getting those and spacers then shopping around for the right backspacing I need for that wide stance look(hopefully). Thanks for the suggestion though buddy.

    Bilstein 5100 2.5" Strut lift, Bilstein 5100 rear shocks with ProComp Add-a-Leaf, Black RockCrawler 8 hole 17x8 wheels wrapped with BFG 3ply S.W. 285x70x17, T-Rex grill set....
    Got these because I got a great deal on BFG 285/70/17 used! Needed them for clearance with stock wheels, but finally got my RockCrawler Black 8 hole wheels, 4.5" with 0 offset...

    Only used on highway and street 3 weeks of use! They worked great but I really wanted new wheels, and this is a cheaper way to help with clearance up front. I was assured, by three tacoma enthusiasts owners, these are the way to go. They were right, great ride, and helped with the clearance before I was able to get the wheels... took a freaking month!:eek:
