What do you all think about wheel spacers. Other boards people either love 'em, or hate 'em

Those who use them, there seems to be two schools of thought when using them.

Use lok-tite when securing to the rotor/axle shaft
-or-
Use anti seize and torque the nuts to specification

I'm looking at these from Wild Horses

I have 1.5 spacers in the back with no problems, once loc-tite was applied. But of course you know I'm easy on my rig. LOL
