Re: 1/2" Wheel spacers?

Added leverage on the stud would only be an issue if the bolted connection looses it's clamping force either by the lug nuts loosening up or improper torque. If properly torqued the friction between the faying surfaces carries all the shear load.

I personally don't like the adapters. They are equally as bad if not worse in my opinion. With spacers you can at least check your lug nuts every now and then to make sure they are torqued. With the adapters the nuts holding them on are hidden by the wheel and you don't know if they loosen up... loose nuts could cause you to lose a wheel with both types.

Caveat:. I've never run either type.
