So I found some 1.25" bora wheel spacers on CL. I am going to go pick the up Friday and had a couple questions. Does anybody know what they are to be torqued to and should I put loctite on them? I've done a bunch of research on the pros and cons, and decided that I like my factory gunmetal rims too much to swap them. I would assume that they get torqued to whatever is recommended for the factory wheels, but I like to ask questions before I act. In the threads I saw 1 guy say 110lbs and want to be sure. I only do light offroading and want a slightly more aggressive look.

Yes, just torque them down to your normal wheel specs. You do want to use loctite for added security. Blue loctite is fine to use, some people even use red but it is not necessary. Make sure to re-check the torque on them after the first couple hundred miles, being sure to set the torque wrench a few ft/lbs under what you first torqued them at so you won't break the threadlocker.

You're gonna love them dude. Use a torque wrench and loctite at least the first time and recheck them after a couple days. I'm assuming they are hubcentric.

(I hit them with the impact now that I've been running mine for a few years lol)

just recently did mine and i'm assuming all Bora's are hub centric at least when i was shopping around for them. i ended up using blue loctite on mine on all studs cause i was paranoid. but i torqued everything down to OEM specs (110lbs). like honda said, you're going to love it! i will say drive thru's suck especially when they have curbs inside and outside of the lane but probably doesn't help that i'm LWB! :devil:

Thanks for all the replies guys. I'll post some picks when I get a chance to get them on. Busy weekend with new years and hitting the steelers game. Probably get them on this coming week.

Well I got all set to do the spacers today popped off the front wheel and went to put on the spacer and I didn't have a 1/2" thin wall socket that fit in the spacer. Changed my oil and called it a day. I did put one on just to see how it will look and really think I'm going to like it. Hopefully if nothing comes up I will do it on Friday and post some pics.

Well I got them on today. I'll post pics tomorrow after I get her cleaned up. I told myself check for rubbing before you pull out of the garage. I didn't get far before I pulled back in and removed the mud flaps. I still rubbed a little. I stuck a pry bar between the tire and the wheel well liner and made a little room. They are just barely missing it now. When I pull the tires in a week and check the torque on the spacers, I'm going to try to hammer it back some. It's too cold to do any cutting right now as it would need some paint with the PA salt.

Nope! when i first slap them on i had put my review and impressions on the spacers and that's one of the first thing i notice...the truck was more stable. i'll find my quote!

found it!

I hear ya! I'm rubbing slightly and it sux having to trim some more but oh well. I will say this...before the spacers when it's windy I can feel the truck sway a bit when the wind hits the truck from the side or corner. But now I notice it doesn't sway as much anymore. I'm guessing having a wider stance the truck seems to have pretty good stability. I'm wondering if cranking the coilovers up 1/4" will help with the rubbing since I'm only preload at 2"?

What do these spacer cost. I do see some that run around 100bucks or so or do I need to stay away from the cheap stuff

Bora's will easily run you $250+ but i'm not sure who sells it the cheapest. i got lucky on mine as i picked it up from another Titan owner but his were hub centric but they weren't Bora's...SpiderTrax i think? there's a member selling his right now! i'll find the link
