One other thing to consider is the size of the spacer; up to 1/8" will not affect the lug nuts to any potential, but something like 1/4" will definately strain them. You can go to lug spacers, which normally start at 1 1/2" and they will allow you to either add wheels with a large + offset, OR if you have wheels with a very high backspacking, such as running a 14" wide wheel for a drag slick. These lug spacers are perfectly acceptable, up to a certain torque, where you'd be putting a bending moment on the axle as it's undergoing it's torsional stress and you'd snap either lugs but most likely an axle or half-shaft.
