Wheel spacer brands?

I know Spidertrax are the preferred brand. I have Summit Racing gift cards and was looking at these. They are hub centric and uses grade 8 bolts. I'm looking to do 33x12.5 on a stick 5.5BS TJ rim. Should these spacers be fine?

Look like a solid option. t-6061 alumunim and anodized just like Spidertrax. Only thing I'd be leary of is the fact that I've never heard of anybody running them. But they could be a diamond in the rough.

Good deal.

BTW - ignore any haters. Install properly, check the torque on 'em when you change your oil (every few thousand miles). You'll be fine.
I've been running 1.5" Spidertrax on the WK for going on 2 years. Driven thousands of miles and wheeled on them plenty - never had an issue.

I've been running Rough Country 1.5" spacers for more than a year. About $120 for four. Billet aluminum, hub centric well built. Holding up well, checked lugs a couple of times and not a single one had to be re-tightened so far.

Spidertrax here as well for just about a year now.

Found them on my local Craigslist for $75. Had to snag them up.
Check out cl.
Save your summit money for other goodies!
Good Luck!
