    you can use spacers, or have wheels with a deep backspacing.

    Don't spacers and large-offset wheels put more strain on the wheel bearings? Maybe this is something to be concerned about, for those of us who want the wheel bearings to last a long time? Or maybe I am just a jackass? ;)

    The offset/backspacing thing has to be explored wheel by wheel...because you can change the offset and backspace and the same time to put the weight in the same place.
    Wheel spacers create a moment in the hub that was there before...but lots of folks run them without issues. Smaller spacers should create immediate problems. Down the road- I've seen just as many non-spacered hubs/bearings fail as ones with spacers.
