I wrap my right front exhaust pipe because I do not like the oil hose passing through the exhaust elbow. I've never heard of a strap hanger for the hose failing but it could happen, and if it did, the oil hose would sit directly on the hot exhaust.
That said, I re-wrapped the right front exhaust during last condition inspection and exhaust tubing showed no problem...
