issues with running spacers for rims

Are there any issues with running big spacers on the car to allow using incorrect or better stated not optimal offset rims?
Was not sure if there were issues with overloading bearings or some such to warrant not doing it.
Getting used rims online is often cost effective to having a set custom made in the optimal offset to avoid the need for large spacers.
Running spacers is bad enuff in that it is an extra cost involved.
