as a means to an end, yes. as the final product, probably not.

I am annoyed with wheel shaking on these Chinese spacers I've got. The holes are too big, and there are slots that make the thing not balanced. It's tough to get it in just the right sweet spot, I had them installed well but when I took them off to put the tires on the 80 all of that is shot. I'm hopeful a more balanced wheel spacer will make this better.

But I thought a lot about what kind of compression nylon 12 will see when a lug is torqued to 85 pounds.. once it's smashed in there how much further could it go when a wheel sees side load?
