Putting speakers close to the side walls

Hi everyone,

provided that there's good bass treatment (such as the entire rear wall or a sufficient amount of corners filled with rockwool), are there any major concerns about putting the speakers close to the side walls (about a foot or even less) ?

Provided that there's also side wall treatment (4 to 8 inch thick (depending on the GFR) absorber panels for early reflections), and there's also a subwoofer for the very low frequencies (< ~100Hz).

I think close proximity to side walls might help with side wall SBIR / comb filtering issues; analogously to putting the speakers close to the front wall to fight front wall SBIR.

Looking forward to hearing your opinions.

Have a nice day!
