the wheel spacers on my 09 530 had the chrome plating all peel up which toasted the wheel seals
once the plating peeled they corroded fast - only 50 hrs on bike - they looked like 10 years old

I went with some spacers from all balls -they have a hardened steel sleeve where the seal runs
the aluminum spacers were soft on my xr650r also - wore deep groves where seal ran
we ride a lot of mud here - so that may make a difference
