Usually everyone that has bad things to say about wheel spacers have either installed them without torquing them properly or they bought cheap spacers. Buy wheel spacers that are hub centric.
I think far from stock is one company that has good spacers. Might want to check on prices because you might be better of selling your current setup to buy 14 wides. Unless you like the 12 wides and just want a wider stance.

Also check out whistlindiesel on YouTube. He stacked wheel spacers before and he always had good luck with them. Lol

I will never do spacers again personally. There's too much that can go wrong and when it does it costs a heck of a lot more than just buying new wheels. I needed a new wheel, fender, lower control arm, rotor, and lower ball joint when one of my spacers called it quits. I got lucky and the tire just ended up in the bushes, not in someone's house or car / face.

There's always the talk of like what was said above in that well a lot of people have good luck with them. My spacers were Bora hub centric spacers, used Loctite and torqued them to factory specs but it still fell off. I know if you're running 12 wides you have a little extra money from time to time and can afford either 14 wides or 12 wides with more offset lol.

bolt on spacers are just fine aslong as their hub centric. torque them corectly.

they do however put som eextra stress on your wheel bearings but nothing too crazy
