Does anyone ever used wheel spacers or know about them?
It doesn't sound very safe.
H&R makes them from 5-25mm.
According to them it improves cornering.

Any ideas?

they'll cause your wheel bearings to wear out earlier

It widens the track width of the car causing less body roll really...I'm curious about them too and what would be a safe size to run for auto-x just to widen the track on my DA Integra...heres the wheels I'm running 15x6.5 with Bridgestone Potenza S-03's P205/50/W15 in the front and 195/55/W15 in the rear. A 5mm spacer doesn't sound like it makes that much of a difference really...

every little bit helps?

some use spacers to clear calipers....

others use it to clear tires form inner wheel wells. and i dont understand why the wheel bearing will go out sooner...

any updates with any real world experiences?

I wanna use the 15mm spacers from H&R. They are hub centric so they shouldn't hurt the wheel bearing, and i'll be using the extended studs that come with them, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem either, should it?

Anything I should be worried about?

Thanks.

If wheel spacers you are needed, I recommend the BONOSS wheel spacers, they are AWESOME.
