They are not original running gear fitted from the factory so a keen eyed member of the constabulary would happily fine you for them. They can however be engineer approved. Don't play V8 Supercars with adaptors either as 1600kg+ cornering hard will put a LOT of stress on them.

You should really consider using some Loctite Nut or Stud lock on them then if you find they are coming loose!

that's no different to not doing the nuts up properly on your mags or the nuts coming loose on your mags. there tapered in the exact same way as mag wheels.
