We take great pride in American manufacturing, promoting our Made in USA stance since we started this college hobby business back in 1999. Taking our Wheel Spacer Kit as an example, we have manufactured the spacer exclusively in the US for over 16 years now, using only the finest grade of US manufactured aerospace aluminum on the market. This by itself is enough to make a Made in USA claim, that is by the FTC “virtually all” standard, we can claim our Wheel Spacer Kit is Made in the USA regardless of where “the rest” of the kit comes from. But why stop US manufacturing at just the spacer?

In addition to manufacturing the wheel spacer in-house while using only US manufactured aerospace aluminum, also Made in the USA is our wheel studs, lug nuts, thread locker, lug nut bubble bag, aluminum anodizing, packaging foam insert, product instructions, Spider sticker, box label, and our printed Wheel Spacer box. Every single component in our Wheel Spacer Kit is manufacturing in the USA, without exaggeration and without exception.

I find it’s one of those things that, having done for so long, becomes commonplace and doesn’t really hit home until we are giving a shop tour or writing a post like this. Felt inspired to take a quick break and share that with you today, when we say Made in USA we really mean Made in USA. With that, back to work we go.
