Default

1) depending on the style of spacer, they could require longer wheel studs
2) they change the location of the weight outside the balljoints (move the tire farther away) which increases wear on the suspension & steering systems from the added leverage
3) they can lead to scrubbing of the front tire while turning because the tire is farther away for the actual pivot point of the steering system
4) can allow the wheel to become off center in relation to the hub


Just a few things to consider.......
