Wheel spacers

I want to order some 2 inch wheel spacers for the rear wheels on my lifted F350 to even up the track since my front wheels are spaced allready for turning radius issues. Front wheels stance is nice. The rear wheels seem very narrow. I was thinking of ordering a 100 dollar set off ebay from lugnutguys. They have very good reviews. They are 100% billet and are the type that bolt on with open end lugs then you bolt your wheel on to the spacer studs. Was wondering if you all have installed spacers like this, did they cause you any problems etc.

I personally will Only use Billet STEEL spacers. You have to remember these are 6-8k trucks, not a 2k honda

Welcome - Arrowcraft :: Helping You Handle the Road for over 30 years! has the best price on the billet steel spacers. They are $225 for a pair

Yep. He's right. Don't order the crappy eBay spacers no matter what reviews they had.....I've seen 6 out of 8 broken front lugs on a dually because of one of those crappy spacers. Bout totaled the truck.....

I bought mine from free goetzke. Wheel adapter.com.......he's where you need to go. Not knocking arrow craft, I just don't know them. Tons of guys on here have freds spacers and swear by them.....

Sorry for the double post but i found a pair of 2 inch arrowcraft steel spacers from a good rep seller on ebay asking 189.00. They look to be in good shape with surface rust. What would be a good price do you think?

Yeah i cant ever imagine selling my OBS. Love having the last year of my fav body style. Thats why im trying to work out all the kinks. Just ordered a new set of bds shocks, doing a few things to the interior, got some bed armor to touch up spots in the bed, changed all the fluids, trying to space out the rear wheels a little for an even look, and need to rotate my tires and replace a wheel cylinder. If i had any other truck i wouldnt care about doing a damn thing to it.

I found out the expensive way. Fred Goeske from Wheeladapter.com buys the spacercs from ARROWCRAFT, then marked them up $150 and sells them to you.
just cut out the middle man(fred) and buy them right from arrow craft
