They'll all work fine, I've been running death-trap non-hubcentric spacers with no loctite for 45,000 miles

They are as good as they are maintained.

Spidertrax seem to be a popular choice. Just make sure to check whatever spacers you do run semi-regularly.

what goody said....1.5" will give you the 4.5" backspacing you need when you run 35x12.5" tires. The brand that I have used was Spidertrax

I've run both Rough Country and Spidertrax on my rigs. They will all work ok as long as you maintain them as these other guys stated.
