Rear wheel spacers

I couldn't find a definitive thread.

2002 Quigley V10, 285/75-16 tires.

Looking at these: http://www.hendersonslineup.com/product ... hread.html
(2" per side)

CorrecTracks I couldn't find online.....

Any other options I should look at?

Re: Rear wheel spacers

Does it say anywhere if they're steel or aluminum?

Re: Rear wheel spacers

CorrectTracks are steel, if they are the actual brand, and the name isn't being used generically. I'm pretty sure CorrectTrack and Hendersons are almost neighbors.

Re: Rear wheel spacers

I thought Quigley sold them as well.

Re: Rear wheel spacers

I have them. They are aluminum. Easy install - didn't have to trim studs. No problems. No complaints, but nuts are larger than the lugnuts. Rides better. Looks way better. I would definitely do it again.

Re: Rear wheel spacers

I sell spacers, steel. They're machined for each van, and hub centric. I don't use aluminum for a few reasons, mainly because the studs are easier to strip out if someone hits them with an impact.

Re: Rear wheel spacers

I also ordered them for my 2002. They were aluminium and were not hub centric like the photo showed. Those are great for a light jeep but not a heavy van. I sent them back and got the ones like Ujoint sells. Get your spacers from him. They fit like they are suposed too with the centering ring machined into the steel. It helped the ride a whole lot.

Re: Rear wheel spacers

How does spacing the wheels further out improve the ride?

I installed CorrectTracks back when they were still in business and, while I didn't find that it improved the ride, it certainly improved the handling. Before installing them, I felt that I needed to keep both hands on the steering wheel all of the time. After installation, it was more like driving an automobile. (I still keep both hands on the wheel...)
