Hi,

I have a 2005 3500 dually.

I had 2 inch spacer, but they required bolt centric outer wheels. I sold the wheels, put stockers on with 215 for summer. I need to make another set and I want to run 265 75 16 with.

I need a 1.5" spacer that is hubcentric for the outer wheel, allowing stock steel wheels and wheel nuts.

I found a few spacer would require to installing the axle shafts after spacer, but that means an unremovable inner wheels. Cant have that.

Is there anyone with a similar setup ? I know Mossman381 on youtube had the same tires and a 2inch hubcentric spacer that worked with his steel wheels but he sold the truck and doesnt remember the brand.

I only know one place for steel spacers that could work, But Ive overloaded my truck with aluminium 2" spacer and didnt have any issues, so aluminium is fine with me.

Wheeladapter.com say they dont ship international, Im in canada

I just ordered a set of 1-1/2" spacers from a place in Vegas called motorsports tech. Takes a little while to get them as they are made when you order but the fit and finish was excellent. I went with the steel version although they have an aluminum one too. Less expensive than the Fred's spacers.

seeing as motorsports tech only charge 50$ more for steel spacers they are very competitive.

I'll call them monday to check on shipping options

I ordered from motorsports. 435$. keep in mind I cannot use economy UPS or they overcharge me.
Website lists them at 250 a pair plus 55 shipping in us. but to avoid hidden UPS economy brokerage fee I have to go with a shipping option that is either usps or UPS expedited. And that must be the 130$

Update: Been running the spacers since Dec 23th 2017, such a nice fit, snug on hub AND wheel. Solid chunks of steel ! Makes my old spacer look like toys.

I had a similar dilemma when looking for spacers for mine. Didn't want to have the inner wheel stuck on or bolted separately.

I ended up upgrading the studes to 18mm and longer. Then purchased spacers from Fred without the studes. Drilled out the holes to fit the new studes. Now it is a true spacer rather than an extension

i have Bora 1.5" spacers. Built to order. All handmade. I waited about 2-3 weeks for all 4. The correct fitment is hub centric to the hub and wheel centric to the wheel. Going on 2 years with them and not a single issue. I just removed them when i installed new wheel bearings and lower ball joints, still look new once cleaned up and zero vibration or wobble on the roads. Ive had all kinds of different spacers and extensions over the years but these Boras are top of the line and fit is perfect so youll need hub diameter and diameter of the inner wheel/rim that youll be using.
