rbloodhound Yes. During installation make sure the nuts fit properly and use lock tight.

Salman im planning on putting on some spacers too. Will i be able to go wheelin' if i do ??

Xjman1 Looking at the picture closer as well as the Spidertrax website photo I think the guy gave me some other lug nuts as the ones I used seem longer as well as flared on the bottom. Looks like I need a new set of nuts. Have fun with that line fellas. LOL
03-19-2011 11:21 PM
rbloodhound I wouldn't run it without a full nut plus 1 thread
03-19-2011 11:10 PM
Xjman1 This is an old thread, but the picture of the rear spacer mounted is exactly what I was looking for. I just installed some on my D44 rear end and the nuts would only go on about 1/2 way. In the picture these nuts are all the way on. Is this a D35 and that's why or am i missing something? Just do not feel comfortable the way they are sitting now even though I used Loctite.

NalinMFG hey guys, its new tire time for me and i got a question. i got 32x11.5's bridgestone A/T's on 15x8's w/ 3.75" backspacing. I am very close to rubbing the control arms....and actually have rubbed a few times at full turn. If I get 1.25" spacers will this allow me to move up to 33x12.5's BFG MT's and be just far enough away?

Triple88, above is what I was talking about. Around here most of the guys that want spacers are wanting them to get to more full width, not using stock rims.

Also what the width of the mounting flange on your wheels? 1" probably? So you hang a spacer on there also and now you have a mounting flange that's 2.25" or 2.5". That's going to put more pressure on the unit bearing.

Cost of a 37" interco trxus MT = 250.

Cost of Hutchinson DOT approved double beadlock. = 450.

Spending 700 dollars per 5 corners = $3500

= just enough money left for spacers

no sarcasm here, I'm just confused why do peolpe talk bad about wheel spacers that have their own screws?

I dont see any difference but thats just me.

There is no load difference in that instance. However, that's 20 additional bolts you need to check the torque on every 3000 miles and just more parts that can fail. I've got enough to worry about already. JMHO.

erickpl I have the 1.25" spacers and the tires are 33x12.5" TrXuS MT's.
06-08-2007 02:19 PM
MoA i like the looks of it eric.. what size spacers do u run?

and i really like my stock rims on my jeep.. i dont feel like replacing them.. so i think im gonna go ahead n order a few sets =D
06-08-2007 07:10 AM
erickpl Option 1: Steel wheels with right backspacing
Option 2: Spidertrax spacers.

I got my Canyons before I knew much about backspacing or I would have gone with Option 1. But I ended up just adding some spacers to mine. They work just fine for me, with only a very minor rub at full turn. I need to adjust the steering stops a bit more, as the tire snagged my driver side brake line on a trail run. But I still like them and the stance it gives..

You can see the spacer and the work being done on the brake line here...



On the rear drum...



Stance...

AzTJ buy some cheap wheels with enough backspacing and have your tires put on and call it done.
06-08-2007 12:16 AM
RedRubiTJ I am not overtly concerned for the unit bearing since running a wheel with the same backspace as a spacer does the same thing to it, but I won't run them because they just give that many more bolts to maintain, come loose or break - it's not common but it does happen, usually do to a lack of maintenance.
