Has anyone used spacers on a 500e? Any thoughts?

Generally speaking, be very careful and be selective of the manufacturer and the type of aluminum used. In 2014 I had a failure of a wheel spacer on a vintage Fiat. Luckily, I was only traveling at 40 mph when the failure occurred. The wheel tucked up into the wheel well as I skidded to a stop. The damage was minimal. The inner bolts that mount to the hub are critical as well. DONT hand calibrate tightening these.
