    There's 2 kinds of spacers, lug centric and hub centric. Not sure what ECCPP is. The descriptions refer to what centers the wheels; the lugs or the center of the hub. Our trucks are designed to use the hub to center the wheels and you should not use wheels or spacers that use the lugs to center them. It's a safety thing. If you notice stock wheels have a center indentation where there is a corresponding lip on your hub and when you install the wheel, you can center the wheel before the lugs are on. There's people who say a lot of aftermarket wheels are lug centric but I myself won't run them, nor lug centric spacers. Go with hub centric. In the picture you can see the center ring/lip and on the reverse side there's a corresponding indentation.

    ECCPP is parts brand, not a type of wheel spacer.

    I agree with getting hub centric. I run steel hub centric spacers on the rear axle to match the front track width.

    I'm running 2" hubcentric spacers on all 4 wheels. They're stock and I wanted them to sit flush. I've ran spacers on all my cars and have never had an issue. Just make sure you torque them down right.
