Default wheel spacers

I'm looking for some good quality, not to expensive wheel spacers! I'm looking for a 2" thick or more and 5x135 pattern! Anyone know where I can get some? If you have any pics post em

I can not stress this enough, no matter what ones you get CHANGE THE STUDS. They usually come with fine thread, that's what made my tire come off going down the road. I had 1.5" thick ones (still do, selling with old rims), I went to a scrap yard and got the OEM studs to our trucks to put in the spacers, never had a problem since. Also, use thread locker to secure them to your truck.

As far as this statement goes its wrong. Quality and cheap do not be long in the same sentence. I also would push past 1.5". the amount of b\preload that gets put on the bearing is rediciulous.

he's right quality comes with a price tag I paid about 300$ for my set. I cheaped out on buying eBay ones and that left me on the side of the road and made me just throw more money at them.. Look up the brand Bora. I got the 2" and so far they have held up nicely.

Do your tires stick out from the spacers or do you have offset rims?

If you go to Ebay and look for integrity-automotive, thats where I bought mine, their customer service is HORRIBLE, so when you get the spacer, change out the studs, do not use their lug nuts, get new lug nuts, and you should have no problem.
