|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|

|rbloodhound||I wouldn't run it without a full nut plus 1 thread|

|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?|

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 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.
|06-08-2007 02:54 PM|
|erickpl||I have the 1.25" spacers and the tires are 33x12.5" TrXuS MT's.|
|06-08-2007 02:19 PM|
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|
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...

|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.|
|06-08-2007 12:12 AM|
|1BLKJP||I'm not a real fan of them either. In some instances they can come in handy, however I'm not real big on prematurely shortening the life of the unit bearings.|
|06-08-2007 12:05 AM|
|MR.CLIFFORD||no. Wheel spacers are from the devil!|
|06-08-2007 12:02 AM|
