Questions about Wheel Spacers

So I've been reading a lot of posts about people using spacers and am thinking about getting a set to space out the wheels and fill up the gap but had a few questions, are there any drawbacks from using spacers? can you still tow with no issues? are there brands I should avoid?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Avoid Aluminum. If you get Steel you will be fine with pulling but one of my buddies had an aluminum adapter fail when he was going down the highway and it wasn't pretty.

Only run spacers if you have to! They are not the smartest choice by any means.

If you get spacers, make sure they are hub-centric. Do Not Buy Lug Centric Spacers!

ours:

These are U.S. Alcoa 6061t6 billet aluminum, Lifetime warrentee, hub-centric and wheel-centric The spacers are roughly 3-5 times stronger than the Ford cast 20" wheels .

2" spacers will work without needing to cut off your existing wheel studs



We can get you 1.25-1.5" spacers but you will have to trim the studs shorter. But the back space with then be 4.5" and the rim will set like factory.

perfect, thanks for the advice! What kind of prices would I be looking at for either the 2" or the 1.75"?
