The axle spacer inside the hub, in between the two wheel bearings, should it be steel or is ally OK?

I know guys use outer axle spacers out of ally all the time, so I'm thinking this should be fine. Just wanted some more input before I start cutting into hunks of solid stock. :) Thanks.

I usually use a 4 or 5mm wall thickness with Al. There is no reason to go so large with the OD but you do want something there to keep the spacer from moving over in the wheel when the axle isn't locating it. I've seen a few oem spacers with a ring welded or pressed onto the tube to make fitting the axle easier.
