So many pros and cons about them. i like them for looks. people will say they will hurt your car, other people will say they don't. If your looking to correct an offset on a wheel then sure. but if your doing it just to push your wheel out a little, i hear it can mess things up.

Im going to have to be the one who says no to wheel spacers..

They WILL put added stress on wheel bearings and such. I would never run them on my car...

After reviewing some of my basic physics books (simple machines - levers)...

Wheel bearings aren't the only things that will be stresed by insatalling wheel spacers.

If you do the math - every part of the suspension on a "spaced wheel" will need to deal with more than the originally designed forces. This will lead to premature wear and possible component failure.

Also, spaced wheels could put the outer edge of the tire outside of the wheel well - this will not pass PA state inspection. (don't know about CA)

Exactly. Its not like things will wear out immediately, but they will wear faster for sure.
