no experience with TF wheel spacers. i ran spidertrax spacers for about 2 months after i lifted my rig (still running stock wheels) and i had no complaints with them. i can't imagine anyone having issue with the TeraFlex ones either though...

I can't help on the comparison between the two, but Spidertrax have been in that game a long time.

They make applications for a wide variety of automobiles. I ran them on my Tacoma for over a year and they worked great. As long as you practice diligent maintenance on them they should last a long time.

Ya they are both aluminum spacers...some say make sure spacers are wheel and hub centric...which makes sense.

if both brands meet that criteria and both are aluminum....I wonder if there is something else that I am missing.

both are 100 per set of 2.

Unless you just love your factory wheels it's easy to get a set of steel wheels for roughly $40 more for a set of 4.

I bought 2 sets from Rough Country for $50 each, $100 for both. Seems like great quality and the price was excellent. I just installed them today, no lift but was VERY happy with the wider stance, makes a huge difference to me.

Try Rough Country.

looks like the rough countrys are "hub" centric...their web site says nothing about being "wheel" centric...is this a big deal?

You won't hub centric, sits tight on the hub and has a hub for the wheel to sit on as well,

Could someone post some before and after pics. I like my canyon rims, and may go to a 1.25 as I think the 1.5 are too much for my rig in the spring. This sucks: all winter I'm adding to a list of things to do to my jeep, now I dont think it will be accomplished by next winter... lol
