Steel Dually Spacers

Looking for steel 2" or 3" rear wheel spacers. Who makes the most proven and strongest ones. I've seen it mentioned in here before but can't seem to find it when I need it.

Thanks

Wheeladapter.com seems a bit pricey. Didn't I see a set for a couple hundred bucks on here a while back?

Im running arrowcraft spacers on mine. They use factory style lug nuts and there hubcentric which you have to use on these trucks. You can check out there website but you'll have to call them to order them. They are extremely nice and helpful. I believe there made out of timken bearing steel. Mine where just a little over 200 shipped but that was a couple years ago. Ive put over 30k on them with some heavy loads without any trouble.

You DON'T WANT aluminum spacers...They will snap studs. You're gonna want wheeladapter.com spacers or arrowcraft

I too was on the anti-aluminum band wagon. But personally I have never read of heard of any aluminium spacer failing. Here's a company that has lifetime warranty on theirs. Type of aluminium makes a big difference though.

Those BORA spacers are pretty awesome, I have some that just need to go on, I've ran 3 sets of them now ( different trucks). Good aluminum bolt on spacers should be fine. They have to be stronger than the cast aluminum stock wheels.

My friend put aluminum spacers on his duramax and tore off down the road and one of his back wheels passed him. Snapped off the lugs.
