As long as you make sure they're torqued properly you'll be fine. Check them regularly!

key is to check them regularly. also the aluminum ones tend to loosen a bit faster than the steel ones.

another thing to consider is the strain the hub bearings get with spacers.... premature wear will be immanent.

I had a thread going about them on a stock rim. Do your homework, they might not seat properly if they are hubcentric. You might need lugcentric ones. I haven't really looked so I can't be much more help then that.

Those were the ones I posted. Someone told me in my thread they were hubcentric and might not fit or seat properly on a stock rim.

I had the Spidertrax ones front & rear for about a month--looked bad-***, but I ended up sending them back. They REALLY increased my turning radius.
