Default 3.5 back spacing vs 4.5

I have four rims right now that have 4.5 BS on a 16x8" rim. I want to go to 15" rims since the tires are about $20-40 cheaper per tire. I can get some wagon wheels in 15x8 or 15x10 but they have 3.5" BS.

Question is how bad or good will it be running 3.5 vs 4.5 BS? I know I will be wider and the tires will throw everything past the windows but besides that, how about the stress on the axle? The front already has 1.5" spacers.

Any ideas or opinions will be accepted...................
Thanks T aka Tom KR0MPS
