I think that will kill your wheel bearings.

Look wise it would be good, but you'd be better off getting a set of wheels. But yea, a 1 1/4 inch spacer would throw off the centre line of the wheel and put a bad force on them and wear the bearings very fast.

Um, don't. I wouldn't trust that shit spacer on my lawn tractor. Get nicer, proper fitting wheels. Hell, if you're on a budget and want that "low offset" look, then get 16x8 ET0 sportmax's and slap 205's on it
