Thanks again. Are these the right ones?

Pattern: 5x165mm/5x6.5"
Studs: 16mmx1.5

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wheel-Adapte...5462#vi-ilComp

Just did the search and they seem popular. Has anyone had any issues with these? They seem very.. affordable which is almost an oxymoron when you use in parallel with the word Defender but I trust reviews from this board.

Those are them. They're still cheapest on ebay. They have their own site, but it's a little more $$.

Let me rephrase the question. I know the difference between Hub Centric and Lug Centric.

Is anyone using the Hub Centric Spacers? I like the idea of having the weight distributed across the hub and threads instead of completely on the threads.

I've had these on my truck for three years with no issues. The only "issue" I had is that I can't use non capped steel lug nuts because the studs bottom out before clamping the wheel.

We have some...

$500 for the set.
These are the top of the line, not the cheaper ones.
These have the raised center with the full size lug nuts to attach to the hubs, then you bolt on your alloy wheel with the stock lug nuts.

I run the non-hubcentric wheel spacers from EZ and had the same problem. The capped nuts would bottom out before tight. I took the time and cut about 1/4" off each stud on the spacers and chased the threads with one of the acorn nuts provided with the spacers.
I've had them on for a year and a half or two years now and have had zero problems.

I contacted ezacessories to determine the difference between their eBay and website products. They stated that the ebay spacers are casted where the spacers on their site are direct cut billet.

Anyone aware of this? There's definitely a strength difference between the two products.
