Wheel spacers?? Are they bad for my suspension and/or other mechanical parts??

Im curious about wheel spacers. I think they would make my jeep look great but I am concerned about maintenance and the possibility of them causing extra wear on other parts. Any input would be appreciated.

I run them for clearance on my rig with no issues. Some people hate em, just make sure you get good ones and torque them down as in instructions.

I am ignorant about most things car, but outside of cosmetics, what is the purpose of spacers?

To Give you better clearance for wider tires. That way they don't hit any suspension parts when you turn.
