Creepin__Jeeper The wheel spacers are not made by Rough Country I was told this by the sales guy when ordering mine. Basically he said most of the spacers on the market are manufactured by one company in bulk (think thousands) and then they are sold by different companies. This happens more then you realize with products out there...

I am more then happy with mine and I don't fear a failure at all, I used thread lock on the initial install and torqued them down with my clicker torque wrench and I checked them after 500 miles and they were still tight as the day they were installed.

These spacers are all made from 6061 aircraft aluminum... has there been a failure out there? I'm sure there has been but bet there was either lack of torque check or extreme stress applied that would have caused a wheel or other component to fail.

kappaknight I wish there was more information on this. I dig a little deeper and the so called quality test on the Spidertrax spacers were conducted and released by Spidertrax. Yeah, they're not biased or anything. Is there a test conducted by a 3rd party that can compared all the brands and the quality of the materials in each one?

I keep hearing Spidertrax is great, and I'm sure they are... I just don't see how they can be the absolute go to without a proper test conducted by a non-affiliated party.

I also have the RC spacers on my '12 and they ARE Hub Centric and I do not have any vibrations or issues at all. I purchased both of mine as a set for $109 shipped. I got a small discount for also getting my entire lift and dual steering stabilizer from them.

Daniel_M DO NOT cheap out on wheel spacers. Those generic RC ones have a significantly weaker tensile strength than other top spacer manufacturers.

those "lips" mean they are Hub-centric and are a stock fit. That pic of the RC one is Lug-centric and you might get some vibrations when driving.

I'd cough up the extra dough and buy the quality Spidertrax.

redskinswin I was looking at the rough country ones as well but noticed they do not have the lip on the interior ring as most of the other's do.

These are the Alloy USA ones at $90.00 per pair and what I decided to go with and have the lip.

Rough Country Wheel Spacers

Hey guys,

I am looking around for wheel spacers and stumbled on the Rough Country 1.5 inch spacers for my JK. Now, these are going 60 bucks a pair with 12 dollar shipping, which is a solid 80 bucks cheaper than the usually recommended Spider Trax. I read some reviews and have seen only good things said about them. I also called them and they are Hub-centric spacers and will apparently not cause any rubbing with the stock suspension and rims.

I was just wondering if anyone here maybe had them installed and could give some advice, or maybe someone here ha heard something negative before i pull the trigger to buy them. Thanks!
