Are Wheel Spacers Safe?
Wheel Spacers are not Safe
No, wheel spacers are perfectly safe if installed properly. The most common cause for failures is not due to the actual wheel spacers but install issues. If the wheel, hub, and spacer is stiff enough that it does not flex under pressure, your setup will be perfectly safe.
Wheel Spacers Will Cause My Wheel Studs to Bend
Not true. The load from the wheels are transferred to the axle and hub by means of friction through the clamped joint. You cannot bend a wheel stud. The only way to do so is if the lug nuts are torqued improperly.
When Using Wheel Spacers The Physics of the Wheels Are Disturbed and Not Correct
When you insert a wheel spacer between the hub and wheel nothing in regards to clamping force, coefficient of friction, stress applied to the studs, flexing, load, or any other physics involved are changed.
Wheel Spacers Are Safe
True, when properly installed, wheel spacers are completely safe.
Longer Wheel Studs to use a Wider Wheel Spacer Has no Effect on Perfomance
This has been found to be true through testing.
