Spacers

Bought new rims and tires that i put on during summer. Keep the stock ones for winter use. Really like the looks the spacers can add but would like to know if there is something more to them. What are hazards i need to watch out for if i install some? Summer tires are bigger than the stock winter ones but didnt need to modify anything.

Spacers push your load on the bearing hub outward increasing stress on the bearing. I would not run them just for looks, only if I had to.

Not much different then wheels with less BS.
If anything - more maintenance.

Loctite and check torque often
