    I know nothing about them, but the slot design with one indexing hole at the top means that it could be offset when you mount it up. I have no idea if this would throw off your tire balance or anything, but it seems like a good way to add some nice vibes to your ride.

    I have 1/4" spacers like these, but mine are not universal. I have a horrible vibration at 55-65mph. I'm not sure if it's my tires that are way old. I've tried balancing the tires (which took over 5-6oz of weight) and still no luck, but I'm definetly not getting rid of the spacers or my tires will rub the UCA so I can't verify that they are the problem. I don't know if this helps.

    BTW I'm running these spacers with my stock sport wheels and lug nuts. Have had zero issues and have driven on the highway at 80+ with no issues. As long as I don't drive between 55-65 my truck rides smooth as a truck can ride.

    Im running these same spacers on my 04 audi a4 10mm in front and 15 mm rear. NO issues at all and we drive that car stupid fast. I used a few dabs of silicone to mount the spacer to the rim so they stayed centered & straight and wouldnt fall off if i had to remove rim. Wife has car at school right now but i could snap pics of them mounted if needed.

    you should not have any problems if everything is torqued down correctly.
