Default Re: tire size question..

If you have to change your wheel bearings because of the previous owner, get a repair manual. It will give you the torque spec on installing new bearings. The general gist is you torque the spindle nut to a specified torque WHILE spinning the hub then loosen and repeat at the second torque spec. It is very important that you spin the hub while tightening the nut to get the bearings to set properly.

Like stated above, back spacing and tire size rarely make a difference on bearings unless the spacing is way out of line compared to OEM.
