All I meant was after seeing that, you need not even talk about bearing damage and what have you. They can be fractured with such a small impact, they simply don't belong on any car that turns IMO.
Drop a forged wheel on the ground from 5 feet and it will be damaged as well. Do they also not belong on a car that turns?

I actually agree that a bolt on spacer should not be used. The thinner the spacer is, the weaker it will be. If you use a bolt through spacer with extended studs the spacer is only taking the clamping load of the lugs and a bit of bearing stress if it's hub and wheel concentric.

I hope you know where I'm going with this.
FWIW, I've only ever used metal ones I don't care what you guys run... if you like it, then more to you. just my experience. Like how rotas were gods own wheels for price/quality before someone showed that pic of the spokes missing from the barrel

but it won't totally shatter like a rota will it? that was my point.
