If you have say... 10K miles on the loaner... .and you do a 36K mile lease, then the tires will have 46K miles by the end of the lease, and will be more likely to fail turn-in inspection....
Other than that, if the total lease cost is less than new, there really is no downside, assuming you are under warranty/maintenance for the entire term (as noted above, check the in-service date).
