The spacers will move your wheels out towards the wheel arches so there is a possibility that they will rub. The main downside is the increased wheel bearing wear. The standard wheels are designed to put the centre of the force throught the middle of the bearing but spacers move the centre of force outwards increasing the wear on the bearing. Nearly all of us who have lifted vehicles also run spacers and put up with the battle of the bearings.
