Spacers-Aluminum or Steel ??
:wavey: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.:facepalm: Please advise on your experiences for the long run. Thanks

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.

When I had my RC aluminum spacers i spun the lug nuts on with the impact wrench then tightened them with the torque wrench.
