I went for the Spidertrax 1.5" set. I applied the supplied loctite and torqued to 95ft/lbs of torque. I currently have 245/65R17s at the moment, but will be going to a 255/75R17 after I get the OME HD kit.

I ordered 2 pair of spacers which included the lug nuts and loctite. I ordered direct from Spidertrax and paid $99 for each kit with free shipping. It's more than the ebay kits, but I trust Spidertrax and they are hub-centric (I have not experienced any vibrations before or after the install). I've got about 6k miles on them so far and have no complaints.
