Nice write up and photos.

As far as the rim slipping off, no. But some days I have that problem on OEM wheel hubs and other days no problem. So, I wouldn't put it all on the spacer. Looking at the photos, the lips look to be the same thickness. I also like the cut out on yours and if black extended lugs comes with yours that is a plus. ECS states they will have black ones soon.
