Yeah as long as you buy the good ones not the cheap a*** ones they are fine. I have had mine on for over a year now, no problems. I think it all comes down to the user not the spacers. (unless they are cheap ones :D )

also making sure you have the matching supplied wheel nuts with them.. as they can easily undo as i have found out with non original nuts bolted to the adapters.. also.. watch out for the lugs shearing in half... happened twice to me.. (leaving only 4 bolts holding the rim on)

Been running adaptors for nearly 4yrs and had no issues.
I get the wheel socket out once a week and check all the nuts (same as I would without adaptors) and have only found one loose nut after having tyres replaced.
