    There is a thread over on Wranglerforum where a spidertrax pair came apart and the wheel fell off at like 30mph and stuffed up into the front fender. The pictures showed the studs pulling through the spacer itself, so be careful.

    Also, the spacers will fix your issue, but the real issue is the backspacing of your wheel.

    Yeah I will do it carefully and follow all directions seems to me if installed properly and checked at 50 and a few hundred miles and recheck at servicing a should be fine until I get new wheels and tires on next upsizing!

    Thanks for all of the advice it's appriciated.

    I have ran spacers for years with no problems,I even have them on my full size crew cab pulling trailers. Wire brush everything real good and put blue locktight on the axle treads,re-torque after 50 miles. You will have no problems.

    Yeah.. Red loctite is crazy... Should use blue on anything that you want to stay put, but want to be able to remove later.. Red requires heat to remove..

    Yea i know red loctite is super strong but last thing i want is a spacer loosening up on me so id rather use heat or impact wrench to remove rather than see it pass me on road while driving figure better over do it than under do it. Thanks for all the imput everyone!

    Blue will do fine, but remember with red locktite usin an impact or heat may damage or weaken the wheel studs, plus you don't want to use heat on the alum that the spacers are made of
