In simple terms, wheel spacers aren't that complicated. All they really do is create extra clearance between the wheels and the wheel hub assembly. Once they've done that, because the wheels are pushed out further, you should then be able to fit larger tires onto them without encountering any of the rubbing that you did in the past. The truth is that people install wheel spacers for two main reasons: to enhance performance, and to create a particular look.

Of course, the aesthetic appeal of having larger wheels is fairly easy to appreciate. After all, don't you think it would look really rugged and tough to roll around with wider tires that really add some bulk and just look a whole lot more commanding? That being said, some people also like the interesting look that is created by extending wheels outward from the vehicle with wheel spacers alone. Frankly speaking, this really depends on your own personal taste and the sort of look that you're trying to achieve with your vehicle.

On the performance front, the benefits of larger and wider wheels are also relatively obvious. For starters, they provide much better traction overall and that benefit is enhanced by the fact that the further a wheel is from the hub assembly, the better its traction is too. For taking corners and handling in general, these improvements are definitely substantial, which is why so many enthusiasts choose to install them in the first place. Odds are if you're looking at wheel spacers from a performance angle, this is exactly the reason why.

The only much-touted downside of using wheel spacers is that they supposedly can cause wear and tear on your front bearings and maybe even affect the wheel alignment. Although this is true in some cases, for the most part, it only ever happens when the wheel spacers themselves aren't properly designed or when they are installed incorrectly. If you're using wheel spacers from a reputable brand, there should be no extra wear and tear whatsoever and most of the better ones even feature hub-centric designs, so there should be no issues with wheel balance either.
