Wheel Bearings + 16" wheels

I'm about to snatch up some 16" wheels and have read that it is recommended to switch to Tii struts with their larger wheel bearings for use with the 16" wheels. Is this truly necessary? Will I really blow through bearings without the Tii struts?

Thanks

I've been running 16 and 17 inch wheels for over 6 years now. I have yet to see any unusual bearing wear.

It's all in the offset. Try to get as close to the original placement/load of the stock wheels as possible. You won't get any more wear than the the car running 205/60r13 on the stock wheels.

BTW, I'm running non tii spindles. IT racers have used them for years with great success.

Brilliant! Thank you, Chris. You've put my mind at ease. I really did not want to go through the hassle of converting the strut housing and paying for the new parts.

You're car looks fantastic, by the way.
