An example of good spacer: my boss runs a long-base Jeep with 6" lift and 35s on 18s. He has 2" spacers that are red loctited/torqued to the hub, then the wheels are torqued to the spacer. He wheels regularly and heads down to Moab whenever he can. He's put lots of miles on his rig, as well as plenty of abuse on severe trails. The spacers hold up well, when they're used in the right manner.

I would not be able to use spacers on mine because of the high-er torque that I can put down, as well as the type of driving I do (occasional auto-cross), but for most driving, there's nothing wrong with using a quality spacer.
