Is it really that bad to run wheel spacers/adapters?

I hear positive and negative things about running wheel spacers.

I have a 13' wrx and love how the stock wheels look but hate how its so thin!

I want to run 25mm adapters all around as i seen someone else do it on the forums with the exact 25mm adapters and looks beautiful!

Is this really a bad idea?!

I drive this beast as a daily. I do not race. Just love to drive. Go straight speed. Home to work. Just drive. Occasional pull on the freeway etc.

Help......

well, running stock rims with 25 mm spacers it's like rolling on aftermarket rims so I don't see any problems. I used to have 18x9 +35 offset with 25 mm spacers around

Thats what i thought, a lot of people hate it because it " ruins handling etc ". But i dont track my car or anything. Just a daily driver. Thanks!

I've heard people even tracking with spacers, you should be more than fine as log as everything is torqued and aligned
