    Hey guys, I'm sure there's a few posts on this so I won't make this a big thing. I'm looking to get wheel spacers and not sure what or who to look for. I would like to get 25mm, keep in mind I'm hoping to get them for $100/a pair(if possible) with out getting garbage. 114.3x5 BP what length of bolt 12 x 1.25 or 1.5 and I assume HB is 60 mm? And anyone know much about Akata spacer, a guy here said for $125 I can have them but I saw some online (ebay) and they need to have a pocket on the back off rim to fit. dose the XR rim have this?

    should get off the underline. ;)
    I was thinking of spacers too. but the weight of the truck scares me. I've done spacers before on my G35 coupe, had some M45 sport 19s on there, that needed spacers badly! I took turns at 80-90 mph on some freeway interchanges with no problems.
    Most wheels should have those pockets. Take off one of your wheels or lower down your spare and check before you buy....

    From all that I have read and all the horror stories I would recommend against it, I considered it becuase I want a more aggressive offset but the cost to get a set of 4 quality spacers, you could almost buy a set of brand new XXR wheels and then you don't have to risk it.

    Awesome thanks! Btw thanks for editing my underline. Phone wouldn't let me take it away. Only plan on running the spacer for a season or two until I get new rims.

    The set I bought are for a jeep and I machines the OD hub diameter and installed M12x1.5 studs.
    They sit perfectly flush at 1.25
    I have a bit of a vibration but I'm hoping that gets resolved when I install hub centric rings for the ID of the spacer :top:

    The only thing I can think of failing is the studs on the spacer...
    Having a wheel with a huge offset is going to put the same amount of load on your bearings as it would with spacers

    Hub - centric spacers is the only way to go and If you do plan to go that route check to make sure everything is torque down properly every oil change just in case.

    Try and find something that has a coating so they don't corrode

    I did have a ICHIBA Version 2 Hubcentric Wheel Spacers for 2 years without a problem.
    It took the beating of NJ potholes as well has carry 2 motorcycles in the back without it breaking.
    I can see how people can say buy the rims with the right offset.
    It's safer as you have less things that can fail.

    Now I have bought new rims so not using it anymore but mine did a great job at making the truck look flush!
