Default wheel spacers

Once I have the lift put, im hopin to add to the look with having a bit of a wider wheelbase. Instead going out and buying new wheels with different backspacing, I was thinking about just putting in wheel spacers.

What, if any, are the pros and cons of these?

And how much do they cost? I found some on one site for around $200 and some from another one for around $20. So now im just plain confused.

Default RE: wheel spacers

pros: -they are damn cheap compared to a new set of wheels
-they are very easy to install
-they look really good (just look at my truck! 1.5's in the front and 2's in the rear)

cons: -your wheel bearings will wear out faster
-you will have to retorque everything twice as many times if you take them off/put them on
-they will most likely give you a vibration if you get the larger ones as they usually arent near perfectly cut--i know i did

bought mine for about 160 with shipping (two separate auctions on ebay from the same seller)

take a look on ebay--they show up quite a bit there--if you're still interested around late august/early september i will most likely have bought new rims and tires--look me up!
