Just replace the wheel bearings more often and remember to declare the mod to the insurance co.

Its difficult to explain but as the wheels are wider apart, when on full lock the inner wheel moves over a shorter distance and the outer over a longer distance than without the spacers. Therefor turning a tighter angle.

Make sense? can you 'picture it ' in your head or should I find an example?

Thanks, Thomas.

That would make me think that the outer wheel travelling longer distance would cancel out the inner one?

Confused.

Nope.

The outer wheel travels further, the inner wheel travels a shorter distance, this allows the vechicle to pivot at a tighter angle around a point.

I may have to draw a diagram!

Thanks, Thomas.

I would imagane that it would put strain on things

Because there are no other rims available for the D40 - it has an unusual PCD of the bolts - that is for the D40 only. The D22 had the same PCD as the L200 etc, and so wheels were available.

Anyway, an offset wheel gives the same effect as a spacer anyway - the contact patch is still x mm further out.
