The spacers from BORA in the previous posts from Amazon, are made from 6160 T6 aluminum billet. They are produced and machined in the US. These are not cheap china knock offs.

It is called 6061.

Personally I wouldn't trust any spacer on my X especially aluminum ones.


And billet only means any chunk of metal, it is not a magical metal.

Thanks for number check... I'll do better next time. I don't think I implied "magic metal" and if I did, just for the record, it's not magical. Most high quality US aluminum billet is produced via continious casting method in Alcoa TN and yes...that does make it "special" but not magical. It's kinda my neighborhood so I'm pluggin' for my home town industry.

Your cast Aluminum wheels are more likely to fail then high quality aluminum spacers. However as I stated in my earlier post steel is more forgiving.

Dually trucks have been running spacers for years and millions of miles. I'd bet money that damage is caused from a impact

That wheel came off during a TV show, scroll about half way down the page to see the wheel pic. Jennifer Brennan » robbie

She was just rolling along down the highway and "Hey look, there goes my wheels".



DravenTn: sorry I didn't mean for the post to come off like it seemed to. Sometimes I write these posts in a hurry and cut right to the point and sometimes it sounds like I am scolding, yelling, or what have you. I never intend that in any of my posts.

I meant: "Excuse me but I believe your numbers are off a bit, I believe it is called 6061 T6 aluminum alloy. I may be wrong though, I'd do a quick search to make sure. Have a wonderful day sir. Sprinkles!"

And yes aluminum wheels break quite frequently actually.

Holy cow Snow! Is that busted aluminum spoked wheel really epoxied together between the spokes and carbon fiber rim? That sounds scarier than lug centric aluminum spacers!
I think the back story on the pictured dually spacer failure was it wasn't installed correctly. When the silly 22.5" spacer/adapters were installed the wrong style lug nuts were used and either torque or stud length wasn't right, can't remember exactly but it has been discussed here before.

Nope, still wouldn't use them. :P


You guys can all enjoy the newer wheels with spacers, I'll stick with stockers.

I am still on the fence about using these wheels vs keeping my factory wheels and selling these. I am in to them for almost nothing so I am sure I can flip them for more than I am into them.

I won't run $pacer$ either Andy, I tow way too heavy for me to be comfortable with them, steel or alum.

My 18" SD take-offs are actually older than my EX and they fit right without $pacer$!

I am curious, ford made even the rear axle wider in the later years? Where is the difference in the front end, just spindles?

If I go for the billet aluminum adapters instead of Fred's steel ones, is there a difference in the quality of aluminum ones? And can any one advise who has decent ones for sale.

Try to find adapters which advertise as hub centric, T6-6061 billet aluminum from Alcoa.

Or get them from CTperformance.com
