kjeeper10 Reputable brands are aluminum.
Impact ???
Never want to use a impact on your tires/spacers.

There's a torque spec of 90 ft lbs iirc that must be checked periodically.

Spacers-Aluminum or Steel ??

I'm thinking about putting spacers on my 2012 Altitude Unlimited. Should I use Aluminum or Steel ?? One person told me if you like to rotate your tires on a regular basis, using an impact wrench may cause some to the studs to spin out on the aluminum spacers. Please advise on your experiences for the long run. Thanks
