This practice is still illegal but here they are:

Just buy some other wheels in the right offset

It also depends on who you buy them from. I think the wheelmags or some company named like that are good.

Why are people so dumb?

Theres nothing wrong with copies - if you buy from the right place. Wheelmags is one of the best sellers in Australia, he doesnt sell cheap crap.

Any rim is vulnerable to buckling, especially at 19" + !!!

As for spacers - hub adaptors are fine as long as theyre made from quality billet, and as long as you use the right nuts on them.

People need to start taking responsibility for the s**t they do - put the wrong nuts on - dont blame the spacer because the thread stripped.
Hit a big pothole at speed - dont blame the rim because it cracked.
Bought cheap and nasty rims or adaptors - dont blame them because they broke - blame yourself for being a stingy prick.

I dont think they make copies for those wheels but you can sometimes get them on ebay for under a grand.
