Problem with lower offsets

Just curious whether anyone has run into any long term problems with lower than stock offset wheels or spacers? I'd love to have a wider stance and really fill out those wheel arches but not at the expense of premature wheel bearing failures.

Also on a side note are there any potential problems with running 275 tires on stock 18x8 rims? The way I understand it is that 275 generally need 8.5-9inch rims.

Thanks in advance

Re: Problem with lower offsets

I've run spacers and or super low offsets on my all car and never had an issue.

Also you can put even wider 285's on a 8 inch wheel no problems.
