Any firm information that wheel spacers cause additional problems with wheel bearings. Been running 2" spacers on all four corners for several years and have had no problem. Just something I heard, I'm sure the extra weight put a little strain on them, but has anyone had problems?

I had 14 in itp bead lock with a +6 offset on rear . Fronts were +2 I think. I couldn't keep bearings in it. I loved the way it rode and handled but 4 or 5 rides and they were shot. Went to 1 1/2 spacer on rear and stock sport wheels with 26 inch bighorn and they have lasted a lot longer. The terrain where we ride it extremely rough so I still don't think I get a great bearing life. Pivot works offers a lifetime replacement on wheel bearings now so I haven't paid much attention since I don't have to buy them anymore.

Dizzledog, 4-5 rides and it would knock the wheel bearings out, that seems extreme. I tried out running two 2" (4") on each back corner for a few months, throw frigin mud everywhere and the ride is much better with just the 2", but it looked badass with the 14X27X11's on the back and 14X27X9's on the front.

It doesn't sound like wheel bearings have been a real problem other than for DizzleDog. I wonder if the HOT ROD has problems keeping wheel bearing in his carriage, he runs it pretty damn hard, Jet might want to check his bearing when he takes the 'Jet' out after being down in the WV Hills for so long.

Fronts were wore on my 450 just a little when I traded it in.  Have no idea about the mileage, but I would say it had less than 2000 on it.  I ran itp wheels with that stuck way out past the fenders (don't know the offset) and had 26x10 tires up front.  I do believe wider puts more strain on the bearings.  It's more leverage on them.  SO far they are all tight in my 700 with about 1600 miles on them.  25s and stock sport wheels with the factory spacers in the rear only.

i bought my lil fo-fitty 2 years ago with 250 miles on it.
i just replaced the right hand side at 700 miles and will prolly do the back next season. the rears were in worse shape than the fronts.
i ride in mud a lot and i think doing LH donuts might have something to do with the right side wearing that much bounce
