I think all situations are different. I had the older version of the RE spacers on my old E36 M3 for at least 25K miles and never had a problem removing them. Anti-seize was applied to the spacers when I got new tires. About 25K miles later, I got new tires and when I was at the tire shop, I removed the spacers without the use of any tools and reapplied anti-seize while the tires were being mounted and balanced by the technicians. I also inspected the spacers for any deformities, etc. and I could not find any.

I have the Macht Schnell Spacers on my E90 M3 right now because I wanted to try something new. I used the same method with the application of anti-seize and have not had any problems so far. I had remove the rear tire recently to install the OEM alarm, but the spacer did not stick to the hub or wheel. The mileage between installation and removal is 1700. Only time will tell...
