Thanks!
Most tire shops won't use spacers or recommend them and won't install cause of liability reasons. They are safe to use as long as you mount them properly and torque the bolts to spec. Make sure to recheck after a day of driving and recheck often. When you mount the spacer onto the hub, be sure it's flush all around, no gaps. Bolt on the wheels star pattern with longer lug nuts. Be sure they turn 8-10 times before tightening.
