I am. Spacers have nothing to do with ride quality

I'm running our ECS Spacers (found HERE) on my car here in Ohio (not New England but we get it a good bit of the white stuff and have tons of bad roads too). Snow, bad roads, ice, etc the spacers don't effect the ride of the car in or on any of those conditions, and the conditions have had no ill effect on the spacers.

Are there any long term effects of running spacers...on the hub, axle, bearing, etc? I'm talking after years, not months. I typically don't use spacers. I've historically opted for new wheels with proper offsets for the flush look, so I'm not familiar with how spacers affect things.

Spacers put no more stress on components than a wheel with an aggressive offset. Running a sticky compound tire in theory causes more wear and tear than running a spacer to give your car a more aggressive stance.

I run 18mm in the rear with no issues. Wish I went 20+mm.
