1.25" FOR THE FJ CRUISER-What's recommended for a FJ with stock wheels and 285's? 1.25" or 1.5"?
Question regarding lug nut/stud thread engagement... how many turns of thread engagement do these spacers allow with the provided lug nuts? Please tell me that these nuts were not fully seated at the time this pic was taken.
Three turns is not enough to safely secure a wheel to a vehicle... ideally, 1.5x the diameter of the thread worth of engagement will allow for maximum clamping for a fastener of a given diameter.1.25" FOR THE FJ CRUISER-
5+ to 7+ full turns to install lug nuts onto wheels (depending on wheel thicknesses *gap between lugnut and rim*-oem or factory)
3+ to 5+ full turns to install bolt to Spidertrax spacer to rotors.
(fitment on fronts is less, compared to front *3+full turns)

Hubert,Supra- I contacted Spidertrax direct with your fitment questions on the Spidertrax spacers (front fitment on FJ)- Here is the reply:
Based on an exposed stud length of 0.850", you should get 6+ turns out of the lug nuts when installing the WHS-007 spacer to the hub. Since the lug nuts that we use to attach the spacer to the vehicle is an open ended lug nut where you can see the stud vs. the stock closed end lug nut, you can not evaluate the amount of engagement visually. Checking the amount of turns you get when tightening the lug nut is the best check.
We have designed our lug nuts to have a “bulge” as a safety option so they could not be installed backwards and because of this feature the length of the lug nuts are longer and stud will not use all of the threads on the nut. When our lug nuts are fully tightened they have the same amount of engagement as the OEM lug nut. I hope this helps, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Also, we'll be getting our project FJ in here, so I'll check that as well once we get it on the lift-
Not sure if you've searched, but there are many FJ members here and other forums that have been running the Spidertrax spacers for a long time now, and have yet to read any negative feedback on the performance and fitment with Spidertrax. The Spidertrax spacers widens the stance for better handling and more-
