I answered YES because too much of a good thing can cause anything. However, my real answer, were it available would have been "it depends". I would estimate nearly every Wrangler offroader has either offset rims or wheel spacers. In the 19 years I have been offroading I have not noticed an unacceptable wear on the unit bearings (wheel bearings) of anyone rigs that I am familiar with including my own. Obviously the wider the spacer or the more offset the rim the more likelyhood of premature wear. Personally, I think wheel spacers of 1 1/4" or less or offsetts similar do not cause any unacceptable damage. john
