Weet van iemand sin wat veroorsaak het dat sy studs af gebreek het en amper sy lewe gekos het

As much as I would like to widen my wheel base a bit, I would rather look for a deeper dish (bigger offset) rim than to fit spacers. Just don't trust them.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Spacers wat breek is nie reg gemaak of vas gemaak nie!!!. Omdat daar n nuwe stel studs bygevoeg word gebruik die manne pirate of aftermarket studs wat nie die ekstra kragte kan hanteer nie. As jy spacers gebruik maak seker dat die nuwe studs dieselfde as die OEM op jou voertuig is!
Hanteer ook die spacers op dieselfde manier as alloy rims. Die toyota Owners manual sal jou se dat na n 1000km moet die wiel moere weer oor vasgemaak word anders kom hulle los! Dit beteken dat jy die wiel moet afhaal en die spacer weer vas draai. dan sit jy die wiel terug en as hy alloy is dan moet jy na n verdere 1000km hulle ook weer vas draai. As die wiel moere op n wiel met n spacer loskom breek hy sonder om te waarsku mors af!!!!!!

Bad news! Probably why they're illegal over here! Just buy the correct wheels to start with!

Also depend on the on the axle such a full floater, referring to the rear axle mainly. One must make sure that the spacer sits tight on the drum, debris etc must be removed first.
