The issue with running them in states that are illegal is IF you have an accident with them on and they are found guess where the Insurance company will head to, yes you were running illegal / off road only parts

A wheel with 3.75" BS will put the same stress on the hub as a wheel with 5" BS and a 1.25" spacer will.

As for Utah, someone posted the inspection guide somewhere here and SpriderTrax would fall under adapter, not spacer IIRC.

It's not the same. Think of the point of contact of the rim as a fulcrum point of a lever. The closer you get to a zero offset, the less stress will be applied to that point.

Depends on how they read it. Most read it as any adapter/spacer etc is the same. So you want to go to court to argue how the wording is on a state law on something like a adapter? Good luck

For me I'll run the correct offset / width wheels and worry about 20 lug nuts instead of 40
