Neither do I. It's about as simple a concept as there can be.

now.... you take your brake rotor and you make it farther out 1 inch. (lengths differing on spacer sizes... and you put the correct bolts on.

Assuming it is a CORRECT wheel spacer (meaning hub centric) it will STILL be hub centric with very little/no weight on the bolts.
