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.
If you get vibration, you may need to clean up the surface better. Personally, I cleaned the hell out of the hub, face, and mounting surface of the wheel. You really shouldn't have to force it on; even lightly. They should slide on and rotate with no resistance or binding. I mean, if you want them to be perfect that is...
