No.
There is an amount of thread engagement that is needed for the lug nuts.

It depends on the wheel spacer size. 3mm up to 6mm probably shouldn't be an issue as there are plenty of threads on the studs.

When you have spacers so wide that they bolt to the hub and the wheels bolt to the spacer. I wouldn't use those.
