Default Spacers good or bad?

Im looking to have a little wider stance on my 2000 ZR2. I'm currently a little low on the cash otherwise i would just go with some new rims with a diff backspacing. So my question is how safe are wheel spacers? Are they meant for offroading? My blazers a daily driver but i like to to take it offroad every now and then.

Also any one have wheel spacers on a ZR2? What size did you go with did you use a a bigger spacing in the back then front? (also have 2 inch lift shackles and t bar crank)

Put some 1.25' spacers on the back and call it good. Putting spacers up front will have the same affect as rims with too little back spacing.
