Yep they are safe.
Just don't buy a cheap set. Stick to H&R or another reputable brand.

So how long do they last before they disintegrate? I have my Midas spacers now for nearly two years and about 60,000km and my cab has "quite" a lot of torque, if you know what I mean, nothing happened yet. I rotate the Midas spacers with the wheels every 5,000km.

But everyone to their own....trust me I'm not dissing the pricey spacers, mine is still surviving perfectly well.

So guys I have the new rs wheels fitted...15 front and 20 back..getting 6 turns on the stud by hand before torquing them with the wheel spanner..
The manual says minimum 6.5 rotations and 10mm load bearing thread? Whatever that means..The studs I used were the supplied extended ones from H+R but they do not come past the nut...
