Question safe!?

haha sorry got to ask this! are spacers safe? i am running bbs ch with 245/19/35 and i just put in some spacers 15mm h&r, i got them from **********s with the bolts. so i was wondering are they safe to run? like i was told by some people that the bolts can brake since they are longer and that they are not strong. also how Tight should i be screwing them in, the orange paper it came with is kinda scaring me saying something about re tightening after 60 miles? some one help!!!

(still have to install the other side, just need to know this info!)

thanks!

They are pretty safe...I'm running 12mm on my CHs and have pushed the car pretty hard w/o any problems or shaking.

I had them on my last car, they were ok. Would definitely recommend hub centric spacers though.
