Keep in mind that the width of the adapter will reduce the wheel offset. A one inch adapter will reduce offset 25.4mm. For example a wheel with a 49mm offfset will become the equivalent of approximately a 24mm one. That's more than enough to create a rubbing issue (tire on fender lip). That amount of change in the offset can also change the amount of loading on the wheel bearings and accelerate bearing wear.
