Yep, spacers and adapters are illegal in all states unless they come on a production model.
But.............i've had adapters on my HZ van for over 150,000 klms without a problem and my van is my daily driver, driven everywhere and i've got a set on our EA at the moment too.
I have heard of them failing, just depends on how they're made and fitted to your car I guess.
