    First of all I did a search with the words "spacers" and "bad"

    Anyway I have heard horror stories about having wheel spacers are these true. What are the pros and cons of having wheel spacers?

    Depends, even sizing up your wheels and tires creates extra wear on your components. I wouldn't worry about it.
