Does -19mm Offset Put Strain On Bearings?

I just had a 2 inch OME lift installed. Next are these Series 1069 - Polished Alloy Wheel by Pro Comp wheels that have a -19mm offset. I will be running 32/11.50/15 tires.

Question---Is that amount of offset hard on bearings or anything else?

First time ever, NO response on a question from U all. --- When we adjust the center of the wheel, does that change put pressure on the wheel bearings or other parts.

That particular offset and backspacing combination will fit a 12.5" wide tire and hasn't created any undue stress on my unit bearings. My Jeep has 101K on it so far and still no major mechanical repairs to the axles...

ford-willy- I am doing the same thing as you, but slightly different. After "much" research, I will more than likely take a 17x9 rim with a -12 offset and putting on 33/11.5/17 tires. However, a 2.5 inch lift is required to keep my 2011 JK from rubbing. I probably could go higher than 33, but playing it a little safe. And according to the 6 technical experts in the greater Denver area, this config should have no issue on barrings due to where the offset is in comparison to the 9 rim.

In doing the rough math for your situation, it seems like you have some play as was mentioned by Wheel2Work above. Will be curious to hear how it all works out for you.

The 32/11.50/15 tires I want take at least a 8 inch wide wheel. --- To my question, I remember years ago when I was young, the thought was that offset wheels "leverage" hurt the wheel bearings.
