Would these wheel spacers be safe.
 
Need some spacers for my 5x205 steels and came across these.

I wouldn’t do it. Yes, we have lite cars, but still.

Not sure, but what I think I'm seeing is 5 really thick washers... The balance issues alone are enough to avoid that arrangement. One single spacer of some sort that is wheel- or hub-centric would be more agreeable... or an offset that is mountable then studs to mount the wheel to... (old style)... A little more proven anyway... Those *may* work... but I agree with John... not a really good option.

Looks like a bad idea to me.

I’ve run ‘spacers on a couple of occasions, but used the aluminum one piece type with no problems. But, the ‘washer type doesn’t seem right to me.

I have 1/4” multi hole spacers on the front of my 73. Had to file the 4x130 holes. But seem to be fine. Got them on Amazon.
