What is the significance? I'm assuming that it keeps the wheel perfectly centered?

If you overtorque you could damage the rim, rotor, or other parts of the suspension. Undertorque and the lug nuts could work their way off.

Also helps prevent the brake rotor from heating up unevenly and potentially "warping" as well as the other reasons mentioned above. Lug nuts can snap too

If you are running spacers, you should def be torquing your wheels

Ultimately depends on who makes it and what material they chose.

But if you have to ask, then ask yourself is saving 2 ounces per wheel worth the risk?
