Wide wheels with low offest cause bearing damage?

Has anyone had the issue of running wide low offset wheels and ruining bearings?
They are the rears 10" 40mm offset.

Front 8.5" 28mm offset
Rear 9.5" 42mm offset

Changed bearings as a matter of course at 100k miles, since done 75k miles, regular inspections and all good.
