Yep without spaces the rim will create a wobble which adds vibration and thus kills the wheel bearing early in its life. In fact it could shimmy/loosen the lug nuts loose too.

After speaking to the owner it was clear that this was no ordinary PT Cruiser but actually a Ferrari in disguise.

Did you mean WITH ?

Of course I agree with you if you gonna go and buy cheap spacers from autozone for $2,99 a piece. I had H&R spacers with longer bolts on my previous Audi A4 and for 8 months I never had a single issue. no wobbling or loose lug nuts.

Yep you want spacers. Without I am saying then it can lead to wobble killing wheel bearings or wrong angle for the tire and etc.
