The spacers themselves should not create any adverse effect on bearing loading if properly applied. Ideally, you would like the track width to be original OEM spec with the replacement wheels and spacers reproducing the correct stack-height. (if the wheel has +25mm negitive offset, add 25mm spacers = nil)Any time the wheel center is moved away from the bearing center there is a risk of increased bearing load. The giant 930 rear wheel bearings may not be an issue but the two-row 911 models might not survive with great longevity.
