The rear spacers just slipped on, but the fronts I had to tap down lightly with a rubber hammer to get flush with the hub.

Are the Macht Schnells as good as any for future removal based on their coatings - and aluminum to steel issues mentioned in the thread?

I noticed some notches on the spacers - is this what you would use to pry them off?

Thanks in advance.
Those are reliefs for a flat tipped screwdriver or other prying tool to easily separate the spacer from the hub.
