Wheel studs and wheel spacers

I installed 1.0" H&R wheel spacers on the rear wheels. I got the following warning from a buddy.

FYI-I just got off the phone with my Ford guy about this. He said it is an easy thing to do, but MAKE SURE YOU USE A GRADE 8 WHEEL STUD when you do it! The standard stud is a grade 5, and he said these are not strong enough for maximum Cobra performance dynamics for the wheel with spacers.

MM says the stock wheel studs are fine.

Should I be concerned???


Thanks
