I think you get more play side to side, so you need more space to accommodate that.

Aesthetically, closer is better. But closer means more time fiddling with rubbing noises. Closer also is more problematic in muddy or snowy conditions. Most important in those conditions is that space increases from where crap enters to where it hopefully exits. You also want to discourage sticks from entering by having it closer at the entry point.
