    Ive done my research figured out which brand i want to go with but my question or concern is that ive heard wheel spacers will eventually weaken the wheel bearings? is this true? if so how long would it take? oh and i plan on keeping my factory alloys

    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    i've just noticed that a lot of people argue that spacers exert more force on wheel bearings and hubs because of the added leverage that results from extending the wheel out further. however, you rarely hear that same argument posed regarding running wheels with a lower offset (i.e. a wheel with 0 offset will push the tire out 30mm/1.25" by comparison to the stock rim). just seems like different sides of the same coin.

    Bump for ya. I've been curious about the same thing. I'd almost sprung for a set and then heard this rumor.

    I agree with this ^
    I think it's more important to buy quality spacers. Spidertrax is the way to go.

    i got spidertrax based on the majority of recommendations here on TW. only run them for about 1000 miles though, so i can't speak to longevity of the bearings.
