Great mod and I'm mad at myself for not getting these sooner, lol.

I usually do about 8-10 tire changes a yr.

No more spacers falling out everywhere

do they help with tire changes? Should be a little easier since the spacers will not fall out on each side right?

Yes, that's their main purpose. Plus they weigh less the the OEM spacers.

@sro LOL

Words o caution......
the cast rims at some point utilized different spacers.

I think 2010-2011 are different in some manner from 2012-current.

Too lazy to see what year you have, and I also don't know if spacers for HP wheels are same as cast, either, so there's that to consider too, prior to ordering.

One last thing I DO know, don't attempt to help yourself with neat time saving trinkets while you're reacquainting yourself with Maker's Mark, JD, JB, etc. and surfing the internet.

I ordered a set of these one night in said circumstances, and was slightly surprised when they arrived, because they only work on OEM WHEELS, (also because I bought them from the FREAKING UK!) which my aftermarket wheels, do not accept. The wheels I have came with a single captive spacer for the cush drive, and a traditional spacer on the right. This past weekend I had planned to meet up with with a retired machinist, and have one and other stuff cut, but life happened.

Like anything, SMOOTH is FAST.
You can get captive spacers, but if you're spastic, those spacers won't make much difference, and can/will fall out while removing & reinstalling.

lol, words of the wise! Thanks for the information man, much appreciated!

No drunk shopping for me. I did that once, and ordered a bunch of items on Amazon. The MAC is an alcohol free zone! lol

I'll have you know, I'm on a 2011, stock wheels, ordered thru TJ @ RidersDiscount.

All good my friend!
