Ran wheelspacers then deep dish rims on mine for years and not had any big problems with wheel bearings failing due to load. Contamination or too loose / too tight is what wrecks them. Fit genuine seals (the rubber on some of the pattern ones is poor and not pliable enough)
For LRs, there's an older part number for some hubs which is double-lipped. Also if swivel ball seals are good, remove the halfshaft seals, fill with oil and let it run through the swivel into the wheelbearing (instead of grease). Oil also quickly lets you know if you have a failed seal (grease doesn't). If dirt / water gets in, drop the oils and refill. Smile

Nice one Tom i have been looking for wheels on the internet with a deep dish so i could get some and fit them to my disco but i am not having much luck finding a site.
Where did you get your wheels from Tom ?
I dont mind if i have to cut the disco arches to get the wheels and tyres to fit just want to get more axle clearance those stumps in Brahn are a killer and can stop you dead in your tracks.
Also going higher is going to have less of my disco draging through the mud and being able to go more places.

They're 15x10 Mangel 8 spokes, got them from Nene Valley but quite a few places sell them. Will work nicely with any tyre 12.5" or wider (for good floatation). They come as standard rims (I did the beadlock conversion later on).
