Long story short - A wheel with proper backspacing has less points of potential failure than a setup involving spacers.
I don't subscribe to the 'spacers are the devil' idea because I know many people have ran them successfully - but I do know the preferred method is to get wheels with the proper backspacing and never have a need for spacers in the first place.
Most rational people will admit that getting wheels with the proper backspacing is the preferred method over spacers (all else equal).
That said, when using any wheel spacers you need to make sure everything is good and tight.
Think about it - If the wheel spacer isn't torque properly onto the studs, it won't matter how tight your wheels are torqued onto the spacer - It's coming off. lol
Basically another set of connections to deal with.
It's not earth shattering or anything - but you need to check them every once and awhile (just like your standard lug nuts).
