Check out the Spidertrax homepage;

http://www.spidertrax.com/

There's a link in the corner for the Nissan 6x4.5 to 6x5.5 wheel adapters that's labeled "testers wanted."

They're offering a limited run at 30% off and hoping for some feedback. They do offer a lifetime warranty on the sets they sell for testing.

So who's gonna be first? It'd be cheap and easy to find a set of black steelies to bolt them to, I bet. Just find a Yota or Chevy owner upgrading to some bling. :geek:

Seems the problem is still backspacing. Most 16x8 rims I like seem to be 4.5-5 inches of backspacing... Add 1.25 inches of adapter and you got tires that stick out of the wheel well too far. I seached for an hour tonight and still am having a problem finding a nice off-road style rim with about 6 inches of backspacing...

I'd love to get a rim that looks something like these:


Pro Comp Series 8023


Pro Comp Series 8179

Just concerned about them sticking more than an inch or so outside the wheel wells...

I was running 1" adapters from ezaccessory.com and 16" wheels with 4.5 backspacing and it was a bit too much. I recently switched to Titan alloys, which have about 5.5" of backspacing (I think). I picked up a set of these Spidetrax adapters because I liked the idea of the lifetime warranty, and I'm curious to see the fit and finish on these things. I guess it will push my wheels out another 1/4" on each side. I think that will be about perfect.

hmmm, these guys are up in Longmont (a few miles away from me)...

I'm not looking for spacers (yet), but it looks like they're looking for test fitters; if anyone is serious about getting something, I can try to test fit it for 'em.
They're past the test fitting stage. I think the first truck to have a set was Nissan Technical Service's "Project X2", which is running them with some Centerline wheels as we speak. Right now I think they're just looking for a few people to abuse 'em for a while before they do a mass release to the public.

I'd be curious to see how many sets they're going to sell at a discount as "testers."

After your post, Shawn, I've been looking at Titan/Armada wheels on eBay. They're cheaper than aftermarket and the right BS. I looked around online for a wheel with a BS between 5 and 5.50....its harder than you think! If I can find a set of wheels that meet that requirement than I'd be all over these adapters. Hell its almost worth buying these adapters and sitting on them until I needed them, they're a great company and I'm sure these things are up to the abuse.

The price is definitely right!!! They're cheaper than the ezaccessory.com adapters.
I can rest a little easier knowing they're hubcentric.
I think I'll have to give them a call.

Well, I got black steelies from my 2k burb sitting in the shed, just collecting dust. Practically brand new. Now if they would fit on the X .....
