I've had -18 offset on my car for quite a while now, and only one wheel bearing has started to go bad and thats because the fender isn't pulled enough on that side and my car always contacts the wheel. I've put it through track abuse, street abuse, road trips, and daily driving. Have 100k on the car now.
I guess mazdaspeeds have stronger bearings?:dunno:
The main thing causing extra stress on the wheel bearing is the increased distance from the point of contact of your wheel, to the wheel bearing. So I don't think having a more square tire is going to change things. You camber would be more important.

What do you guys think of these? Yes they are reps. No please don't hate me.
The owner came by the shop and wants us to be the US distributor for them. Price point looks to be around $1000-$1500. I know, for a few hundred more you can get the real thing.. if you can find them. So what says you...
I have a 93 LE and in need of some new tires. I have the factory BBS 14 inch wheels and want to keep them so Im looking for a 14 inch performance tire. Cost is not an issue because my buddy owns a tire shop and told me "to come grab what I want" What would you run?
